Two days ago the story about the transport Minister pressuring board members of the State Railway of Thailand (SRT). Two days later, not some but ALL, board members of the SRT, including the board’s chairman Kulit Sombatsiri, tendered their resignations to Transport Minister Saksayam Chidchob.

Effective immediately.

The Nation reports that Kulit denied reports that the mass resignation was due to political pressure, without providing any independent reasons for the mass departures.

There had been speculation for some time that they were under pressure to resign, saying the transport minister wanted to replace the entire board with new members. There was also a litany of expensive mistakes based on poor decisions by the SRT Board over the last decade.

Kulit says the board was appointed by the previous NCPO government and it was appropriate to step down when the new elected government took over.
