Thailand Bans Local Political Activity
태국, 지역 정치활동 금지
Since Tuesday, coup leaders have declared martial law, banned public gatherings and restricted the media. Governments around the world have condemned the coup and the United States says it will review its assistance to Thailand.
The military junta has pledged to select a civilian prime minister
within two weeks. Then the interim government will write a new
constitution to pave the way for elections by the end of 2007.
Mr. Thaksin, now in London considering options, was the first ever
prime minister to be elected twice. He had been cleared several
times of charges related to corruption, but the junta has appointed
a panel to investigate his official and business dealings.
