Bangkok, the 9th of August 2010: Chairing the meeting, Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva endorsed the sole candidate for the position, stating that he has the experience and quality needed to command such an integral position.

The Royal Thai Police Board with the exception of the premier and Justice Minister Pirapan Salirathavibhaga, who abstained from voting, agreed 8-0 that General Potephosree be promoted to the distinguished position, based on his outstanding track record and experience.

Gen. Potephosree is the current Deputy Police Commissioner General under acting police chief General Pateep Tanprasert, who retires at the end of the month. The incumbent chief also served under the last permanent police chief General Patcharawat Wongsuwan, who retired in 2009.

The general, who is a graduate of the Pre-Cadet Police School, will be the seventh national police chief after the retirement of Gen. Tanprasert who was rejected as the new permanent chief by his peers following the retirement of Gen. Wongsuwan.

Having not sort to file the vacant role in over a year, Premier Abhisit endorsed Gen. Potephosree as the one and only candidate for the job recently, explaining that he has previously served his country well, with no political affiliations and is deserved of the promotion.

Following the decision by the Thai National Police Board the prime minister will now submit Gen Potephorsee’s name to His Majesty the King Bhumibol for royal endorsement.
