Thaksin Shinawatra may return as Thailand's full-time Prime Minister, ending a break from politics he began last month amid street protests, the government spokesman said on Monday.
Thaksin was scheduled to resume some of his major duties on Monday, including trying to tackle a bloody Muslim insurgency in the country's southern provinces. Spokesman Suraphong Suebwonglee said he might stage a full comeback.
Suraphong told reporters that Thaksin could ask the Cabinet to revoke a resolution, which appointed Chitchai Wannasathit as caretaker Prime Minister.
Thailand has had a caretaker government and no Parliament since April 2 snap general elections were annulled by the Constitutional Court.
