Adm Narong will chair a meeting at Phuket Provincial Hall at 9am, where flooding has been named as one of the key issues on the agenda.

He will also travel to Thalang in the morning, then to Chalong in the afternoon

During his previous visit to Phuket in May 2014, when Adm Narong was also Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Thai Navy, storms waylaid much of the Deputy PM’s plans to inspect different areas of the island. (See story here.)

However, he did affirm that 89 titles deeds for land covering some 1,200 rai and encroaching into Sirinart Marine National Park can immediately be cancelled. (See story here.)

After serving as deputy chief of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), Adm Narong was later appointed to the post of Minister for Education, before his installment as Deputy Prime Minister last August.

Adm Narong also chaired the national committee on tackling human trafficking set up last year, tasked with investigating the heinous crime of profiteering in trading and trafficking human lives within the Kingdom.

a deputy PM of a dictatorial government has not the same power like a deputy PM of a democratic elected  government. don't get to much hope for the sea-gypsy's to get justice true him. he is well aware not to have a own mind, not step out of line by having a superior like Prayut, who has his own agenda about who should own land. it could be very unhealthy for him.  like in North Korea, pis...

Maybe he can see in Chalong how no-one can use the beach as it\'s covered with speedboats that should be using the pier!

Maybe he'll find out the real reason why beneficial laws governing tourism can't be enforced (as stated by previous governor) so they have to reduce the number of tourists.   The resulting decline in income to Bangkok may have finally gotten their attention.

Lets hope that the deputy prime minister also has time to let his light shine on the time dragging Sea Gipsy land dispute.  They deserve Government protection, as ancestors DNA samples last year already proved that the sea gypsies live on their land already many generations.
The thai government can not let the sea gypsy community  simply make to disappear in fever of a 1 developer with 'discu...

Well... the inspection and review of policy and procedures employed by Phuket officials shouldn't take too long, since they really don't seem to do a damn thing about anything.  I hope he spends most of his time looking into the Jetski Advocacy Club that operates out of Marine Office 5, and maybe he could swing by Surin Beach and check on the progress on removing illegal business from His ...
