Gen Prayut confirms Thailand general election in Feb 2019 | News by Samui TimesOn his visit to the United Kingdom, Gen Prayut had talks with Speaker of the House of Lords, Lord Fowler about promoting trading opportunities between the two countries through the so-called Global British policy and the Thailand 4.0 policy, with the Thai – UK Business Leadership Council playing a key role in the matter.

With regard to Thailand’s political situation, Gen Prayut confirmed that the general election would be held in February next year and local elections might take place three months after the general election.

Gen Prayut also had the opportunity to meet Thai people in London and thanked those who offered moral support to him. Thailand’s prime minister said he was not angry with those who oppose him, adding he came to the UK for the country’s sake.

Gen Prayut however, had to cut short his meeting with Thai expats due to a terror warning from security officers. The Royal Thai Embassy in London announced the warning affecting Thai people and advised them to exercise caution when returning home.
