Govt to hold off on reshuffle ahead of key House debates

PM ignores Thaksin's call for prompt change

- +

Any cabinet reshuffle will have to wait until after key debates in the House during the August session, a Pheu Thai Party source said yesterday. 

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra does not want a reshuffle before the House deliberations in case certain groups within the coalition government try to exploit the situation to secure cabinet portfolios, the source said.

The bills expected to be passed in August include the second and third readings of the 2014 budget bill, the charter amendment bill, the 2-trillion-baht borrowing bill and the amnesty bill, the source said.
