The military will still be in power even if he steps down. For a long time.

Could be worse than him though probably difficult to achieve that distinction.

 

Only have to look over the borders Myanmar and Cambodia to a lesser degree. He should go however but as been said he like Putin will change the rules to hang on to power. And of course the Army will always back him up.

Prayut who apparently is not going to step down anytime soon only advised the debatable issue surrounding his eight years in power be finally determined by the Constitutional Court and declined to make comments about it himself.

Who has the constitutional court in his back pocket?

     As always, no doubt he is 'satisfied' with his performance and he has instructed himself to continue with his fine service to his people.

 all  (<deleted>) started the same way, 8 years ago it was barely a small military operation

 

Prayut says 2014 coup was a 'necessary evil' to move Thailand forward

“The justice system and independent organisations could still work independently, without my intervention,” he said.  🤣🤣🤣

Seems those in charge these days just change the rules - in nearly every country - to suit

Indeed. And not inclusive to contemporary times, but acted upon historically - the world over.

You made a promise to hold power only until a transition period and things were stable. You have broken that promise, and appear to be utterly intoxicated with the power. So, we cannot believe a single thing you ever say. 

 

Get out. Get out now. You are not liked, and you are not wanted.

.....and we'll wait for the next cycling group. 

Nothing is ever going to change unless the crux is crushed. 

Your asking the wrong one to go.

Most, still don't get it.

 

All of this surface political nonsense that we discuss and debate has little to do with anything.

And who will replace? Thaksin's daughter? Giving the vote to those incapable of thoroughly thinking through who's the best candidate -- is the bane of democracy. And that's where we're at in Thailand. Thus, just who the next prime minister will be in Thailand is anyone's guess. I would hope someone like Somkid -- but I doubt the masses would understand why he'd be such a good candidate -- and would probably gravitate to a familiar name, like Shiniwatra.

 

No, Prayut's illegitimate ascent to power will always prejudice any kudos for doing good for Thailand during a rough 8 years of dealing with economics during Covid. But, I bet Yingluck would have done worse. Why? You don't get to become a four star general unless you're smart and capable of getting things done. Yingluck didn't have equivalent experience. In the US, our best years were under five star General Eisenhower, as president. And helping him grease the skids was five star General Marshal, as Sec'y of State, then Sec'y of Defense -- with his Marshal Plan to bail out a failing Europe. So, don't sell short retired generals as incompetent -- particularly Prayut.

 

So, if Prayut wants to hang around longer than 8 years, so be it. Don't think he's done a bad job, all things considered. And don't know who out there could have done a better job, or would do a better job -- if somehow such a fine candidate would even run... No, keep Prayut, a known entity, for as long as we can. After that, things will become stinky.

Many of us would disagree, wholeheartedly. There are 2,200 generals in Thailand. Do you really think all are smart and capable? There are countless areas where Prayuth has failed, as a leader. He is moving the country backwards, at an alarming pace. Thanathorn, or a similarly smart and progressive candidate would and could do far better. Accepting the status quo, just because it is there, when he is regressive, oppressive and incapable, is not a good idea.

Probably one of the most misinformed and ignorant things I have ever read on this forum. Congratulations.
