Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha issued a statement defending the government’s integrity in reforming the energy sector, especially with regards to the proposed establishment of a national oil company.

The statement was issued before Thursday’s vote on the contentious amendment to the Petroleum Act

Prayut refused to answer reporters’ questions on Thursday morning but provided the written statement.

He said his administration would not allow the military to play a leading role in managing the energy reform effort as feared by critics of the new petroleum bill.

He threatened to take legal action against protestors who oppose the petroleum bill.
