Prayuth waiting for royal approval

PM-elect Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha on Thursday said he would wait for royal approval before commenting on any issues.

When asked if he is ready to be the premier, he replied, "let the country move forward".

Prayuth was not in the meeting that elected him as the new premier as he joined the anniversary celebration of the 21st Infantry Regiment in Chon Buri province.

His nomination is expected to submit for royal endorsement today.
