NCPO to solve problems within limited time frame

 BANGKOK, June 28 -- Urging Thais to be patient, army chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha said late Friday that the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) would rectify problems accumulated in the past, ones that previous governments were unable to solve, within a limited time.
The leader of the NCPO which seized power on the May 22 said during his weekly televised address that there were still several problems that need to be solved, ones which affected the people’s livelihood.
These problems have been prioritised  by NCPO and could be divided into three categories namely pressing, short-term and long-term problems.
On pressing problems, said Gen Prayuth the NCPO would try to solve them within three months, started from May.
The pressing problems that would have to be resolved included crime, gambling, narcotics, deforestation, war weapons, influential criminals, smuggling of migrant workers, rising  inflation, assistance for farmers, and revising trade and investment laws.
Also, the NCPO would have to make preparations for national reform after the reconciliation process was complete, he said.
Short-term problems would have to be resolved and they would take “not more than 300 days”  where people from every sector would be allowed to participate.
These issues include solving corruption, political reform, energy reform, education, economic equality and reducing income disparity, and access to natural resources.
These short-term problems will be tackled after an interim government, national legislative assembly and the reform council are formed, Gen Prayuth said.
He said long-term problems would be tackled after a general election was held, in which pressing and short-term problems which were not solved completely would be rectified by the elected government for the benefit of every group of people in the country.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
