Victory for generals as Thais vote for junta constitution

Women mark their ballots at a local polling station during the constitutional referendum in Thailand's restive southern province of Narathiwat on August 7, 2016Thailand voted Sunday to approve a junta-scripted constitution, preliminary results showed, in a boost to the army’s political aspirations and a body blow to the country’s stuttering pro-democracy movement. The military says its new constitution will curb endemic political corruption, bring stability after years of unrest and pave the way for a general election next year. Partial results released by the Election Commission late Sunday showed 62 percent of voters had approved the charter, with 90 percent of votes counted so far.
