Long-time readers will know that PPT has little regard for what we can now call the 2017 constitution.
Now that the junta’s charter is in place, what has changed? Nothing, it seems.
The Nation reports on The Dictator’s broadcast on the charter:
The premier [they mean The Dictator] stressed that although the new charter had come into effect, the Cabinet, the National Council for Peace and Order [the junta] and the rest of the current administrative [mostly military] personnel would continue, at least for the time being.
What about the “election”? As usual, General Prayuth Chan-ocha “said his government still could not provide a clear schedule as organic laws needed to be passed in preparation for the vote.”
Nothing’s changed. We got fooled again. Time for something new?
