Thai junta to keep tight grip after transfer of power

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's military makes way for a new administration in coming weeks, but the generals will keep a tight grip on power by filling an interim cabinet and legislature with soldiers, military sources said on Wednesday. The armed forces took power on May 22 in a bloodless coup following six months of street demonstrations that contributed to the ousting of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. The junta has since purged officials linked to Yingluck and her brother, Thaksin, a former premier himself and widely seen as the power behind Yingluck's government. #Arabic #Business #Entertainment #France #India #markets #Middle East #military #opinion #Technology #United Kingdom
