    THE NEXT GENERAL election is still several months away but it seems preparations are under way for General Prayut Chan-o-cha to return as prime minister – and he has a big edge over others if that was his wish...............

    Considering the range and depth of talent and ability across the political, academic and military spectrum of Thai society, Prayut's statement speaks volumes about the mans ego. It is often said of political office that "the best man for the job is one who doesn't want it".

    OPINION

    Prayut plots path to political future

    THE SUNDAY NATION

    AFTER ALMOST four years in power, the ruling junta appears to have strayed tremendously away from its original mission of healing the severe political conflicts that led to the 2014 coup.

    Its present main goal, many observers and politicians agree, appears to be ensuring that General Prayut Chan-o-cha comes back as head of government after the next election, which he promised would take place “no later than” February next year

    In attempting to regain political control after the election, the junta may want to continue with its policies and projects that are still incomplete.

    His opinion that he is the only person qualified is quite ominous ...

    Wasn't it the peoples' inability to choose the right PM the rationale that brought this man to power in the first place?

    It seems those who believe they own the country and backed the coup think Prayut has completed a satisfactory probationary period and should now be confirmed in the post.
