PRIME MINISTER PRAYUT Chan-o-cha has finally confirmed that he is seeking to run the country for two more years after the next general election.

 

Prayut told reporters at Government House today (Dec.6) that he will seek to prolong his rule for two more years as earlier allowed by court but stopped short of either confirming or denying that he may contest the nationwide election under the tickets of the Ruam Thai Sang Chart Party.

 

The current premier who has risen to power by way of the 2014 coup which he orchestrated as army chief is largely speculated to opt out of the ruling Palang Pracharath Party where he would otherwise be named a No.2 contestant for head of a post-election government with party boss Prawit Wongsuwan being tipped to take the No.1 spot.

😒 I bet he does. Has he not got the hint that 99% of the country want him to disappear?

No.  He has done his sums.  He needs two more years to graft the necessary funds for a comfortable retirement.

I hint, that the Thai PM has not understood basics of democracy. 

The question is not what he wants. He might want to hint, if his electorate would like him to even stay around another day.

This question, of course, is not asked as the underlings, minions and the zero-divine; they are told form birth onwards in no uncertain way not to hint about anything.

Exception to this rule are lottery numbers, amulet trading as well as trapeering at fossied dinosaur vomit left-behinds ...........

Why not stay till 2030 and make it a nice round sixteen years since you illegally removed an elected government, staged a coup and took the country back to the ' dark days '

 

What good has this guy done?

 

What has he actually achieved in nearly 9 years?

Made a lot of generals a lot richer, as well as himself.

Two more years to arrange a means to remain in place indefinitely.

only the people can remove him and his cronies - it would not end well, in the world of history it is called a civil war/uprising/rebelion etc etc , I hate to say it but Thailand has yet to have one in recent history - it is long overdue unfortunately

Yea right , Who's competent enough here to do the job as a PM If they let the people vote for such a person. Who would be the best out of the Bad Bunch.

"so that he can pass the baton to a successor who is “recognised” by the public."

 

oops - he means someone whose name does not contain the letters S-H-I-N

 

and his definition of "the Public" does not include anyone North or East of Korat
