Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha arrived at the Government House on Monday, the day after the general election, later than usual.



He usually arrives for work around 8.30am but on Monday his vehicle was seen entering the Government House at 9.37am.

Palang Pracharat party, which nominated Prayut as its sole prime ministerial candidate, is currently neck to neck with Pheu Thai party in terms of seats won. 

The Election Commission has not yet announced the official tally of the general election.  However an unofficial count saw Prayut’s party with only a few MPs less than Pheu Thai.

Reporters at the Government House tried to ask Prayut questions but he waved them away and walked into the Government House building.

A source revealed that Prayut watched the counting of the votes until late in the night, which probably caused him to arrive late at the Government House. Prayut has no appointments or meetings until 6pm.
