A former cabinet secretary and the former commanders of the army and the air force who retired on Sunday have been appointed privy councillors, effective immediately.
In a royal announcement published in the Royal Gazette on Tuesday, Ampon Kittiampon, a former cabinet secretary, Gen Chalermchai Sitthisad, former commander of the Royal Thai Army, and ACM Johm Rungswang, former commander of the Royal Thai Air Force, have been appointed privy councillors.
Gen Chalermchai and ACM Johm resigned from all positions on Monday.
Mr Ampon held several positions in the public sector including secretary general of the National Social and Development Board and cabinet secretary of three governments led by Abhisit Vejjajiva, Yingluck Shinawatra and Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha. He was adviser to Gen Prayut before the appointment.
Gen Chalermchai was secretary-general of the National Council for Peace and Order and the 40th army commander.
ACM Johm, a classmate of Gen Chalermchai, was the 24th air force commander and board member of Thai Airways International.
