Lopburi –

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul vows to be a candidate for Prime Minister in the next election if he receives enough support from the public.

The Minister as the Bhumjaithai Party leader, along with Transport Minister Saksiam Chidchob as the Secretary-General and party executives, arrived at Khok Samrong district on Sunday, August 7th, to formally introduce the party’s candidates for the Member of Parliaments in the next election.

During the speech, Anutin replied to the reporters’ question about who the party would nominate as the Prime Minister candidate that in the tradition of the Bhumjaithai Party, they would always nominate the party leader as the prime candidate.

“You chose us to work for you and we already proved it with the cannabis legalization. Road development in the province was also carried out. High-speed trains were planned to pass the Lopburi areas. Lopburi is a tourist city, so we will develop tourist attractions.”

“In this government, Bhumjaithai ruled 3 ministries. In the next election, let’s go for 6 ministries. We’d like our brothers and sisters to vote for Bhumjaithai MPs. And If I have to be the prime minister, I will be.”

This is the first time Anutin has publicly said he would be willing to run for Prime Minister although he has been rumored to be interested in the role for some time.
