Thai PM sets out another timeline for general elections

Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha on Feb. 27 set out yet another timeline for general elections, having pledged and postponed elections several times already, Reuters reported.

The latest timeline is "no later" than February 2019. Voting was previously set to take place in November 2018, but the election law was changed in January, signaling further delays.

The ruling military junta party toppled the civilian government in 2014, and Prayuth is under mounting pressure to return to civilian government.

Prayuth has suggested he would like to retain power after elections, a move that is possible under the junta-backed constitution that permits an "outsider" to be named prime minister.
