Academic tipped to chair railway board

- +

An academic is being put forward to be the next chair of the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) board, after all seven members resigned to clear the way for a shake up requested by Transport Minister Chadchat Suttipunt. 

The minister said he would back Boonsom Lerdhirunwong, dean of the Faculty of Engineering at Chulalongkorn University, to be the new chairman of the board.

Mr Chadchat will consult Yingluck Shinawatra on the plan, but said he expected the prime minister to approve the appointment, because Mr Boonsom was a former board member with the relevant qualifications to oversee the SRT.
