The Seri Ruam Thai party announced that Sereepisuth has expressed his intention to resign from his role as a party-list Member of Parliament (MP) early in August. Contrary to rumors, the party has affirmed that his decision to resign wasn’t because of his inability to secure a ministerial position in the Pheu Thai-led coalition. As Sereepisuth mentioned to the party members, their one seat in the lower house hindered the effective execution of parliamentary responsibilities.
Remarkably, Sereepisuth decided to stay aloof from the process of Cabinet portfolios allotment amongst the coalition members. The party stated that his primary motive was to enhance the formation of a new government to propel the nation towards advancement. Sereepisuth’s devotion towards national interests reflects his ethos, according to the party.
Seri Ruam Thai also stated that Sereepisuth would continue his efforts in scrutinizing fraudulent activities within the political sphere even after stepping down from Parliament. His commitment to transparency and integrity are evident in this stance.
Following Sereepisuth’s resignation, the former chairperson of the Roi Et province administrative body, Mangkorn Yontrakul, will succeed him in Parliament.
Sereepisuth’s distinguished career sees him as a former National Police commander and a revered figure known as the ‘Hero of Nakae.’ This moniker is attributed to his successful endeavors in combatting communist groups in Thailand, affirming his legacy as a stalwart law enforcement figure. Despite leaving Parliament, his dedication to national interests and the pursuit of political transparency will continue to shape Thai politics and serve for the betterment of the nation.
