(Photo supplied)Former deputy prime minister Somkid Jatusripitak, chairman of the Sang Anakhot Thai Party (SATP), will move to the Palang Pracharath Party to strengthen the PPRP's economic team, sources said. I believe Mr Somkid and Mr Uttama have the intention to serve the people's best interest, and they have asked to join the party. PPRP leader Prawit Wongsuwon on Friday met Mr Uttama and Mr Sontirat for talks about their return to the PPRP. Mr Uttama, who served as finance minister and Mr Sontirat, who was energy minister, also resigned from the cabinet. Mr Somkid, who was deputy prime minister in charge of the country's economic affairs at the time, also stepped down from the government, citing health problems.
