Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha shared that he would be delighted to see a better person succeed him as Thailand’s premier and said he was tired of using his authority. He made his remarks at the Thailand National Defence College as a keynote speaker at a course-opening event. He shared that if there is a person who is stronger, more competent and more truthful than him in the future, who is equally honest, will continue the job and be accountable for the country, He will freely give the position to him.
He also highlighted he is fed up with making use of power since he used his influence to look after decent people and to prosecute people who do evil things. Just two sorts of exercising powerare now challenging enough.
He said he never wanted to be prime minister and was shocked that for six years he had been in government. He called on people to help foster national reconciliation, and said the 20-year national plan would not mean that for 20 years he plans to remain in office.

In conjunction with recent anti-government protests, two groups of people presented to the police to hear accusations of sedition.
