Prime Minister’s Office Minister Suwit Maesinsee was tipped to head a secretariat’s office for reconciliation reform committee and the strategic committee, government spokesman Lt-Gen Sansern Kaewkamnerd said on Wednesday.
He disclosed it was the initiative of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha there should be a secretariat’s office to coordinate the works of the reconciliation reform committee and the strategic committee and PM’s Office Minister Suwit was marked as being suitable to head the office.
The two committees will determine which issues to be treated with top priority and which are to be accorded secondary priority and identify the agencies to implement the issues, said Sansern.
He disclosed that the prime minister himself had drawn up a model about how the reforms and reconciliation are to proceed. The model, he said, will be compared with a previous model to find out which of them will work better.
He pointed out that there are many issues which are in need of reforms, but they are not yet put into priority order in a systematic fashion. For instance, he said reconciliation issue was revived by the prime minister after many people had questioned about why the government did not attach importance to the issue or whether the issue was already shelved.
