The following is the statement by Gen. Prayuth Chan-cha on Monday morning after the King appointed him as the head of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO). This is an unofficial translation by Prachatai. I appreciate HM the King’s mercy. I’ll do my best after this. Getting the royal endorsement is the way in which I follow the custom which has been the practice, both in normal times and during crisis. This is an administration under the royal command and which follows the law.
