Surayud says PM's Office must reach best way-out with iTV

Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont said Friday that the PM's Office must find a best way-out for the controversy regarding huge fine and concession fees of iTV.

Surayud said it would not be enough for the permanent secretary of the PM's Office to only report the Supreme Administrative Court's ruling on iTV for the Cabinet to consider.

Instead, the PM's Office permanent secretary must consider the pros and cons of all possible choices regarding the dispute and propose them for the Cabinet to consider.

He said the iTV has to maintain its news to entertainment programme ratio as 70 to 30 per cent and the rest of the disputes could be negotiated.

"The best way to handle this is to hold negotiations for a suitable point in line with the self-sufficiency economy philosophy," Surayud said.
