BANGKOK, 22 July 2011 (NNT) – Former Democrat Party Secretary-General Suthep Thaugsuban considers Mr Apirak Kosayodhin as the most suitable candidate for his replacement due to his extensive political experiences.
After his resignation as the Democrat Party Secretary-General, Mr Suthep voiced support for the appointment of Mr Apirak to the post as his successor. He pointed out that Mr Apirak had all the desired qualifications, both in terms of knowledge and ability, and had served in many political positions, including two terms as the Governor of Bangkok.
Regarding the case involving Mr Apirak’s allegedly illegal procurement of fire trucks, Mr Suthep believed it would not become a problem as evidence had suggested that the incident, in fact, took place before Mr Apirak assumed office. Personally, he was confident that the candidate would make an outstanding secretary-general for the Democrat Party.
