Deputy province governor reshuffle

On June 10, the transfer of 8 deputy province governors (รองผู้ว่าราชการจังหวัด) was announced, including some which additionally become acting province governors (รักษาราชการแทนผู้ว่าราชการจังหวัด), some being effective June 14 and some June 21. The following list is compiled from an English article in the Nation and a Thai article by RYT9.
  • Charnwit Wasayangkuoon (นายชาญวิทย์ วสยางกูร), deputy governor in Nakhon Ratchasima to become deputy governor in Sisaket and acting governor of Mukdahan (the second one he was already appointed earlier).
  • Phairot Saengphuwong (นายไพโรจน์ แสงภู่วงษ์), deputy governor in Chiang Mai to become deputy governor in Chumphon and acting governor of Chumphon.
  • Witthaya Kamon (นายวิทยา กามนต์), deputy governor in Samut Prakan to become deputy governor in Nakhon Ratchasima.
  • Chatchai Uthaiphan (นายชาติชาย อุทัยพันธ์), deputy governor in Surin to become deputy governor in Samut Prakan.
  • Pititam Titimontri (นายปิติธรรม ฐิติมนตรี), deputy governor in Sisaket to become deputy governor in Surin.
  • Nivit Aroonrat (นายนิวิทย์ อรุณรัตน์), deputy governor in Sukhothai to become deputy governor in Phuket.
  • Smith Palawatvichai (นายสมิทธิ์ ปาลวัฒน์วิไชย), deputy governor in Phuket to become deputy governor in Sukhothai.
  • Wonkon Yokying (นายวรกร ยกยิ่ง), deputy governor in Chumphon to become deputy governor in Chiang Mai.
Phuket Gazette already reported on Nivit reporting to his new position in Phuket, where he in fact had worked before already on a different position.

The reason for appointing an acting governor in Chumphon is that Karan Supphakijlekhakarn (การัณย์ ศุภกิจวิเลขการ) has resigned on June 9 to take up a post as director of an institute promoting royally-initiated projects. The acting governor Phairot will however certainly not become governor in the October reshuffle because he is tended to retire from government service in October.
