BANGKOK, Aug. 11 (Xinhua) -- The new Pheu Thai government will deliver its policy statement to the parliament on Aug. 24, according to Cabinet Secretary-general, the Bangkok Post reported on Thursday.

"The policy statement will be made on Aug. 24, within 15 days of the royal command appointing Ms Yingluck as prime minister as required by the constitution," said Ampon Kittiampon, secretary- general to the cabinet.

The cabinet meeting on Thursday, Ampon said, was discussing about the framework of the government's policy statement to the parliament.

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra had assigned Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Yongyuth Wichaidit and Deputy Prime Minister and Commerce Minister Kittirat Na-Ranong to head the policy drafting team, he said.

Ampon said the team was directed to coordinate with ministry heads and submit the draft statement to the cabinet meeting for approval next Tuesday, Aug. 16.

The Pheu Thai Party, founded by former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, won a landslide victory in the general election on July 3. It later formed a strong coalition of about 60 percent of the House seats.
