Thailand’s army-installed Prime Minister says a post-coup referendum
and general elections scheduled for later this year could be brought
forward.

General
Surayud Chulanont earlier promised to hold a referendum on a new
constitution in September, followed by legislative polls in December,
to restore democracy following last year’s military take over.

But
he says a referendum ahead of the target date, possibly on August 19
could be held so that the election could be held earlier than planned.

Exactly
who will stand in the polls remains unclear after Thai Rak Thai (TRT),
the popular party formed by ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra,
was dissolved in May over electoral fraud violations.

The military-appointed Constitutional Tribunal also banned 111 senior TRT members from politics for five years.
