The head of Thailand’s military junta, General Prayut Chan-o-cha, on Thursday called for national unity in his country and thanked parliamentarians for voting for a civilian prime minister more than two months after the country’s first legislative elections since the 2014 coup.

“We want all Thais to cooperate with him to push the country forward,” the government spokesman Lt. Gen. said, adding that the prime minister would now do his utmost to benefit the nation, the people and the people.

Prayut Chan-o-cha was able to easily beat Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, the new entrant with an attractive personality, by 500 votes to 244 votes in a joint vote by both houses of parliament on Wednesday.
