Thai junta leader could be PM under interim charter: Adviser
Bankok: The leader of Thailand`s junta could become prime minister in a government to be set up under a newly drafted interim Constitution, but that will be decided by an appointed provisional parliament, a junta legal adviser said on Wednesday.
The military has ruled Thailand since a coup on May 22 and analysts have said General Prayuth Chan-ocha, who leads the ruling military council, could remain the country`s leader until a general election tentatively due in the second half of 2015.
Asked at a news conference on the interim charter whether Prayuth would be prime minister, Wissanu Krea-ngam, a legal adviser to the junta, said: "The constitution allows it, but whether he is appointed or not is down to the National Legislative Assemby."
