PM says his personal social media accounts not campaign tools | News by Samui TimesPrime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha posted his first ever picture to his own personal Instagram account @prayutofficial after meeting with the 13 members of Moo Pa Academy Youth Football team and taking a photo with them. He said that along with the PrayutOfficial Facebook account, he wants to hear viewpoints from the public and receive recommendations or encouragement.

The selfie was posted with a caption saying that the survival of the 13 youth footballers was not due to good fortune but to their own discipline and determination.

A prior post on his Facebok page announced that he intends to use it to further communicate government policy and share useful information, saying as well that he will read as many comments as possible.

Meanwhile, Election Commission Chairman Ittiporn Boonprakong said today that while the PM’s social media accounts have yet to be discussed in detail they will likely not be seen as campaign tools. He assured the public that the commission is tracking the movements of politicians such as those who are in both the Cabinet and the Phalang Pracharat Party.
