My sincere best wishes to Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yubamrung on his unenviable new assignment -- ordered by Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to take charge of efforts to end the violent unrest in the three southernmost border provinces and four districts of Songkhla. Welcome to the deep South and good luck!
The outspoken Pheu Thai MP was instructed to explore ways to solve the problems in the far South and to work closely with the National Securiy Council and with Suranand Vejjajiva, secretary-general of the Prime Minister’s Office.
