+++The Prime Minister traveled on the Thai external route.
Since assuming the position of Prime Minister Sita Thaweesin Traveling to meet people non-stop by going down to meet and talk with people in various fields, on the one hand it is a trip according to government policy. But in other words it is about creating a direction within the Prime Minister for the people. To get popular votes

+++Issuing measures to appease the people
The Seetha government was quick to take various measures to appease the people, viz
The Ministry of Energy “freezes” the price of diesel at a rate not exceeding 30 pounds per liter, from September 20 until December 31, 2023, using two mechanisms: the excise tax. With the fuel fund, as for gasoline, it is currently studying ways to “target” assistance to vulnerable groups.

(Bangkok Apiwat – Rangsit), affiliated with the Thai Electricity Authority. And the metro Chalong Ratchadham Line (Purple Line) of the Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand to help ease the burden of living expenses on people.
+++ Points cut for one month is 3 points.
1) The Prime Minister received a grade for his leadership qualities.
Due 1 month ago Unable to measure performance but you can evaluate the Prime Minister in terms of leadership. By looking at many situations, such as the Siam Paragon shooting incident. The Prime Minister sent a direct line to the ambassadors of China, Laos and Myanmar to express his regret and apology for the incident. When the incident is resolved then the Prime Minister will head to the scene. So the next day the Prime Minister went to inaugurate the event at Paragon. To build trust between people
Take another example. It was a trip to the UN meeting last month. In addition to meeting world leaders, Prime Minister Seetha also took this opportunity. Invite international businessmen to invest in Thailand, for example, after speaking with them Iron musk CGO Tesla via teleconferencing system said that the Thai government is willing to support investment within the current incentive framework, as the Tesla side praised the human resources potential in Thailand. Which is suitable for Tesla investment
2) Who is the minister who stands out?
1 month ago Probably the most distinguished minister Chadha Thisit Deputy Minister of Interior because he was assigned by the Prime Minister, including the Minister of Interior, to be responsible for important work. Such as eliminating influential people, including the use of administrative power, eliminating illegal things and vices with such matters. This raises the question in the account: Using influencers, will the deer-washing process for influential people be effective, while Mr. Shada confirmed that he knows how to deal with influential people. I believe this work will be completed.
3) The minister is in the wrong place.
give her Phumitam Wichachai The Deputy Prime Minister and Commerce Minister described it as really the wrong place. Because of the work assigned to Phumidhamma there is only political work, such as being the head of the committee to study the guidelines for the referendum. While the MOC is not very great for the scenery.
+++ Hot topic: Appointment of police chief.
When is the weather hottest for PM Setha? It happened on September 27, 2023. Police Civil Service Bureau (Police Bureau) With Sitha Thaweesen as president, he decided on the appointment Police General Torsak Sukimon He became the 14th National Police Commissioner (Police Chief) after the first part of the meeting decided to postpone the appointment.
Later General Seripsut Tamiawit Leader of the Thai Seri Ruam Party Send a letter The NACC will prosecute Sita Thavisin, the Prime Minister, in his capacity as Chairman of the National Police Commission, and a total of 10 people carrying out appointment duties The Chief of Police contravenes Article 258 D (4) of the Constitution which allows the independence of the police reform in its work. Having assurance in compensation and hiring using a merit system allows police officers to work freely and effectively
Therefore, it is the first lawsuit against Prime Minister Sita while performing his duties since he began performing his duties.
+++A difficult question for the Sitha government
1) Crisis of confidence
Because of the government’s economic situation, it is a transpolar government. Thus creating a state of mistrust among people. Which affects government policy and administration when people do not have the confidence to move forward with things it is difficult.
As of today, the draft of the Budget Expenditure Bill for FY 2024 has just begun. Prime Minister Sitha had just given the budget preparation policy a few days ago. He is expected to enter Parliament early next year. So, there will be a big problem in moving forward with different projects. Especially the projects for which campaigns were conducted.
3) Digital Money Project, Risk Points
Despite such a project this would be one that the Pheu Thai Party has campaigned on. It was certified by the Election Commission, but now we can see that the aforementioned project is under attack every day. Since it is a project with a budget of 5.6 billion baht, there is still no guarantee that it will bring benefits worth the investment, so this digital money distribution project will therefore be a risk point for the government. Similar to the rice pledge project in the past
4) Thaksin, Government Weaknesses
Currently, society is waiting to see whether there will be a law to stop the punishment.Thaksin Shinawatra Former Prime Minister or not, after the royal sentence was reduced to one year in prison, but in fact, until today, Thaksin has not been imprisoned even for a single day. Because he was considered sick and old, he was staying in the hospital to receive treatment. The case of Thaksin’s return without punishment makes society question the standards of the Thai justice process. It inevitably affects government confidence
