Thai PM Hails Progress, Says He Doesn't Want to Stay in Power

Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha hailed the performance of his military government on Friday and said a much-criticized overhaul of the constitution was needed to pull Thailand out of years of political crisis.
In a televised speech to mark six months since a military-appointed legislature chose him as prime minister, Prayuth said his government was sticking to its plans to restore democratic rule and that the generals were not abusing their power.
