BANGKOK: -- Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan believes that there will not be a coup after the elections this year if there is reconciliation among all political parties and groupings.

 

He dismissed an analytical report in the Washington Post website which places Thailand in second spot after Burundi as countries with high risk of a coup this year, saying that statistics cannot be used to determine whether there will be a coup or not in Thailand.

 

Earlier, a spokesman of the National Council for Peace and Order said that there were several factors that led to the staging of coups by the military in the past.

BANGKOK: -- KEY GOVERNMENT and junta figures yesterday ruled out the possibility of a fresh military coup this year, rebuffing a prediction in the Washington Post that Thailand had a high risk of another power seizure.

 

Authorities said there were no reasons for another military coup and that the current post-coup government was enjoying unity with the Armed Forces. They also said that the military worked under the administration.

 

Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwan said military officers did not want to stage a coup unless the country was mired in a severe impasse. He added that if reconciliation could be reached between the conflicting sides, “no coups would ever happen again” in Thailand.

 

“There is a high likelihood of no more coups if all the politicians can talk to one another and take good care of the people. The military then works under politicians,” Prawit said.

All things are wearisome; Man is not able to tell it. The eye is not satisfied with seeing, Nor is the ear filled with hearing. That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one might say, "See this, it is new "? Already it has existed for ages Which were before us.…

And we know that whenever the military announces either, something will or wont happen, the opposite is more likely.

"statistics cannot be used to determine whether there will be a coup or not in Thailand. "

 

It has worked in the past.
