The Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) Chairman, Mr. Santi Vilassakdanont (สันติ วิลาสสักดานนท์), points out that the political crisis will not end if the House Reprehensive selects Mr. Samak Sundaravej the prime minister again.
Mr. Santi says political situations can worsen and more damages will occur to national economy if Mr. Samak remains in office. He personally views that if the new cabinet is formed, impacts on national policies may be minimized.
In terms of solving political problems, private sector views that new cabinet should grant an opportunity to them, who have been hit by the repercussions resulted from political turmoil, to negotiate and help seek solutions to iron out political deadlock.
Mr. Santi says private sector wishes to see new Government to be acceptable from all sides. He suggests new prime minister must be acceptable from both the Government and Opposition in an attempt to stamp out obstacles to run the country.
