First Army Region commander Apirat Kongsompong could be on his way to replacing the army chief next year in preparation for the next elected government, according to a military source.
Lt Gen Apirat is tipped to be made a full general and promoted to assistant army chief in the upcoming military reshuffle, which will pave the way for him to succeed army chief Chalermchai Sitthisad in 2018.
Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwon yesterday revealed he has forwarded the reshuffle lists submitted by the armed forces to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.
