At the UDD’s weekly press conference on Friday, Red Shirt leaders reacted to the Pheu Thai government’s recent cabinet reshuffle that denied Jatuporn Prompan a ministerial position, and addressed the growing frustration among Red Shirts that the Pheu Thai government is losing sight of its priorities.
Jatuporn shared his thoughts on the cabinet decision
The goal of the Red Shirts is to push for democratic change in Thailand, not to win positions of power in government. We mustn’t tire in our struggle.
He also condemned unwarranted rumours that he would consider switching parties and that he had been offered financial compensation in exchange for being denied a ministerial position.
Let’s not listen to these divisive rumours, they are only trying to weaken us in our fight for justice.
