Thai army chief General Prayuth Chan-ocha set out his plans for the country, a day after seizing power in a coup, saying reforms were needed before an election can be held and enlisting the help of the civil service.
"I want all civil servants to help organise the country," he said. "We must have economic, social and political reforms before elections. If the situation is peaceful, we are ready to return power to the people."
