    I guess they should just postpone it until everyone gets in line.

    I suppose that it stands to reason that anyone who is not going to vote for the junta is unpatriotic, ill-informed, does not understand the issues and is a disruption to the harmony of Thai society.

    I believe he has got a taste for being Prime Minister and does not want to risk ceasing to be such.

    Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha will inevitably face more political challenges this year as he will have to stand by his election pledge to win the trust of the public and the international community and dispel concerns the regime intends to retain its grip on power, observers say.

    PM coy on political future, cultivates media

    5 Jan 2018 at 02:20
    WRITER: MONGKOL BANGPRAPA

    Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha says he is non-committal on whether he will return as an non-elected outsider prime minister after the general election.

    He also spent a long time Thursday defending his regime's media policies, insisting he has never limited media freedom and has no privileges which allow the government to be spared from scrutiny.
