A year of living dangerously in Thailand - Thitinan Pongsudhirak

 They were supposed to be in power for the royal transition but they have stayed too long and now want to win an unavoidable election.

Led by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, the generals who have ruled Thailand since seizing power in May 2014 are now cornered, seemingly at the peak of political power but looking down into an abyss, unwilling to go out without a fight and unable to stay without a popular mandate. In the interim, Gen Prayut's junta-led government is likely to manipulate the political landscape to have it both ways, by holding elections and maintaining power thereafter. The more he and his cohorts try to do so, the more risks Thailand will face in this critical year of transition from military government to electoral rule.
