BANGKOK -- Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha "estimated" on Tuesday that the month for a long-awaited general election will be November 2018 -- but voters must wait until June for the exact date. 

This is but the latest of many election timelines mentioned since Prayuth seized power in May 2014, and installed a military government with himself as prime minister.
