Gen. Prawit has urged all leaders to provide support to the general election to make sure it takes place in an orderly, transparent and fair manner in order to be accepted by all groups within and outside the country.

Meanwhile, regarding measures to tackle problems associated with informal debt, Gen. Prawit asked all units and related agencies to assist farmers and low-income earners by preventing them from being exploited by unscrupulous money lenders.

On this issue, the Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC) and the Anti-Money Laundering Office are already working together in directing their local offices to set up an arbitration committee in each area, to work with lenders and borrowers.

Gen. Prawit also asked for support for ISOC to implement the National Strategy on security affairs so that there will be order in the country.
