Ousted Thai PM calls on junta to explain election plans

AFP, BANGKOK

AFP, BANGKOK: Ousted Thai premier Yingluck Shinawatra on Friday urged the ruling military junta to state whether it will hold elections next year as planned if Thais vote down a new charter in a looming referendum.
The generals who kicked Yingluck’s government out in 2014 are preparing to put their controversial document to the people in August, marking Thailand’s first return to the polls in over two years.
But the junta has been mute on what will happen if the charter fails to pass, sparking concern that a promised return to democracy in 2017 could be further delayed.
“I urge the NCPO to clearly announce what will happen after the referendum,” Yingluck tweeted in rare political comments Friday, referring to the junta’s official name, the National Council for Peace and Order.
