Ex-PM Thaksin fears Thai junta will cling to power

The Thai military junta wants to cling onto power as long as possible, the country’s fugitive former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra said in an interview in New York, not ruling out a return to politics. In May 2014, Thailand’s generals deposed the government of Thaksin’s younger sister Yingluck and are now redrafting the constitution, although the junta chief has vowed to hold elections in 2017. Thaksin said he did “not believe” the elections promise and heavily criticized the junta, who say a new constitution is necessary to curtail corruption.
