Thailand Defence and Security Report Q1 2015

Our View:

A military coup in 2014 has successfully imposed a short-term solution to restore order and stability under General Prayuth Chan-ocha. This interim government is set to remain in place until October 2015 at the earliest, but the army will continue to play a major role in domestic politics beyond the transition to civilian rule. Inefficient allocation of resources hampers development, but will not be addressed by any government in the near future.

The ouster of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on constitutional grounds in May 2014 triggered a rapid escalation in civil tensions across Thailand, pitting her ’red shirt’ supporters against the largely urban, proestablishment, ’yellow shirts’. With the caretaker government unable to calm tensions, the military stepped in and dismissed the interim administration. Temporarily imposing martial law and a curfew, as well as suspending much of the constitution, the head of the Royal Thai Army, General Prayuth insisted that the move was designed solely to restore order.
