Prime Minister of Thailand, Prayut Chan-o-cha resigned as head of the military government in force today.

Following that, he announced that Thailand would be governed as a democracy after five years under military rule.

Prayut retains power as prime minister with the support of pro-military political parties in Parliament and members of the Senate Council of military appointees, in accordance with the Constitution which has criticized various parties.

In a speech aired live on television, Prayut said the military administration had brought various changes, including illegal fishing and human trafficking.

It also helped the mission rescue 12 teenagers and trained football teams trapped in the cave at the end of last year.

The former head of the army took over Thailand’s ruling in a coup in 2014, said intervention was urgently needed at that time, to restore national security.

He said that following the street protests and violence that lasted for six months, the situation recovered as usual after the March 24 polls.

“Thailand is now a fully democratic state with a constitutional monarchy, as well as elected members of Parliament (by the people).

“So, all the problems will be dealt with in the democratic system, without any privilege,” he said.
