Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha remained non-committal about his political future Tuesday despite a pledge to make his stance clear this month.
The prime minister had earlier said he would clarify his future after the last two organic laws on the election of MPs and on the Senate were published in the Royal Gazette and the ban on political parties was eased.
The two laws were royally endorsed last Wednesday. The law on the Senate became effective last Thursday, while the law on the election of MPs will only take effect 90 days after publication. Meanwhile, Gen Prayut on Friday used his special power under Section 44 to allow political parties to hold some necessary pre-election activities, although campaigning remains banned.

Even though his conditions have now been met, Gen Prayut refused to be drawn on the matter Tuesday.
