Thanyawat Chanpinit, 55, and Supoj Rotreuang Na Nongkhai, 54, both presented themselves ready for work at Phuket Provincial Hall yesterday (Oct 8).

The two arrived in Phuket on Sunday (Oct 7), with Vice Governor Supoj taking the time to pay his respects to the Phuket Heroines on Sunday evening.

Vice Governor Supoj previously served with the Ministry of Interior’s Inspector-General’s office in Bangkok, while Vice Governor Thanyawat arrives after previously serving as a Chief Inspector at the Land Department in Bangkok.

Vice Governors Supoj and Thanyawat replace outgoing Phuket Vice Governors Snith Sriwihok and Thawornwat Kongkaew.
