BANGKOK - A majority of executive members of the Palang Pracharath Party, core of Thailand's current coalition government, resigned en masse on Monday, prompting the naming of the party's entire executive board in near future.
The party will pick a new executive board within 45 day under the party's rules.
The Palang Pracharath Party named Prayut Chan-o-cha as post-election prime minister and set up a multiple-party coalition government last year.
Prayut, who has been largely tipped to reshuffle his cabinet in the foreseeable future, will likely pick newly-named executive members of the party for the cabinet seats.
