The three ministers are Finance Minister Uttama Savanayana, Energy Minister Sontirat Sontijirawong and Minister of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation Suvit Maesincee.


Kobsak Pootrakul, Deputy Secretary-General of the Prime Minister, also resigned.

All of them have been part of the economic team led by Somkid and recently resigned from the ruling Palang Pracharath Party (PPRP).

A source from the government said Somkid informed Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha of his resignation on July 15, citing health problems./.VNA
