The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BANGKOK: Thai­land is set to hold gen­eral elec­tions in 2017, ac­cord­ing to the mil­i­tary gov­ern­ment’s roadmap to democ­racy, but a new gov­ern­ment may not be in power next year, the gov­ern­ment said. Deputy Prime Min­is­ter Prawit Wong­suwan yes­ter­day re­as­sured the pub­lic gen­eral elec­tions will cer­tainly take place in 2017, fol­low­ing con­cerns over Deputy Prime Min­is­ter Visanu Krue-ngam’s re­mark on Wed­nes­day, vaguely point­ing to fac­tors that could de­lay the junta’s roadmap to democ­racy. “There has been no de­ci­sion to post­pone the gen­eral elec­tions,” Prawit said. – dpa
