Prayut has insisted he will not resign but said he had no objection to “switching off” the unelected Senate’s power to vote for a prime minister.

A very small carrot, I'll wait for the steak & spuds to follow.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha gave the green light to amending the Constitution on Wednesday, as Parliament’s two-day special debate on the political crisis wrapped up.

I've heard Aussie MP's tell some beauties over the years, but this man just leaves them for dead. How many years between coup and election? How much corruption really cleaned up? How's the healing and reconciliation going?

Nah! Nothing's going to change.

Had there been steps (as promised) to cease the corruption, and to have a path towards reconciliation, then the protesters would not be on the streets.

 

I guess having the tanks, water cannons, riot squads ( and submarines) gives him the upper hand

Helps sod all as the senate is a bunch of army puppets. Make it single chamber and free elections, then deal with the actual problem after the parliament has been voted in by the people, for the people.

 He and they are creating a potential civil war and a huge divide that will never be repaired between the generations. 

 

The potential for civil war has existed for many years.

 

But the great departure was the final click in the combination that unlocked the wind.

 

There's no undoing that.

 

The die is cast.

 

There's no going back.

So, let me get this right.

 

Although the article implies Prayut has agreed to the senate losing it's bloc in choosing the PM, firstly Prayut is in no position to agree this and secondly the charter remains unchanged until changes have been agreed both by Parliament, I assume without a senate vote, and then in a referendum.

 

In other words, it isn't going to happen under this Government as they won't vote for the change, meaning the current senate will still be in a position to help choose the PM after the next election, whenever that is, meaning that regardless of the outcome of an election, unless there's an absolute landslide by the current opposition, which will never be allowed by the biased and probably corrupt EC, Thailand is likely to continue to have a military PM.

 

That's Thai democracy!
