Thai junta seeks support for leader Prayuth to stay on

Less than a year before elections, pro-military politicians are mobilizing

BANGKOK -- Thailand's general election is now expected to be held in February next year, after being rescheduled several times. A key question is whether junta leader Prayuth Chan-ocha will remain as prime minister, the post to which he was appointed after the May 2014 coup.

The retired General has so far remained equivocal about his intention to seek another term, but many believe he wants to continue in the role.
