Government spokesman Chai Wacharonke admitted today that he was approached to take on a different political role, but refused to reveal the details.

He also denied widespread reports that Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin plans to remove him from his current position, stating that the matter has never been discussed with him.

“It is true that somebody asked me to consider taking another political position. I cannot disclose the details, but I admit that a proposal was made,” the spokesman said, declining to say who had approached him.

He added that he is still the government spokesman, as evidenced by his attendance at work every day.
