Thai army chief announces new military rule in place of government

Published: 05.22.14, 13:09 / Israel News

The Army Chief of Thailand General Prayuth Chan-ocha, announced a military take over of the government Thursday afternoon as hundreds of extra troops were sent to the capital.


Prayuth made the announcement in a television broadcast after he held a meeting with all rival factions aimed at finding a solution to six months of anti-government protests.


The army chief stated that military rule would work to restore order in the country and would push through political reform. He also stressed that international relations wouldn't be affected by the move.


The take over comes just two days after the Thai military unilaterally declared martial law in the country in response to protests but insisted that the army presence didn't amount to a coup. (Ynetnews)
