Government security adviser Surapong Tovichakchaikul has said he will struggle to work with Thawil Pliensri when he is reinstated secretary-general of the National Security Council (NSC), as ordered by the Supreme Administrative Court on Friday. 

The court said the government's Sept 30, 2011 order to transfer Mr Thawil citing grounds of incompetence was groundless and unfair and instructed he be restored to the position, now held by Lt Gen Paradorn Pattanatabut, within 45 days.

Mr Thawil, who had been fighting his case in court for two years, appeared on the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) rally stage several times to discuss his predicament and push for national reform.
