Updated: “Election” slipping

Earlier we posted on backsliding by Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam on the supposed “election” schedule. He babbled about “tentatively based on possible scenarios” that sounded like the military junta is rethinking its “election” plans.

Now The Nation reports that Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan has stated that the junta “could delay holding an election if it would cause damage to the country…”.

He said: “The situation changes by day and by month. If we can hold an election, we will. If an election cannot be held, why should we insist on holding one and then cause damage?”

Why hold one if you are absolutely sure you will remain in charge?

Update: The Bangkok Post also has a report on Prawit’s comments.
