Protest after Thai elections delayed

Protesters tested Thai coup leader General Prayuth Chan-ocha this weekend after he said there would be no elections in Thailand for more than a year to give the military time to implement reforms.

Prayuth ousted the government of prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra on May 22 after months of occasionally violent protest. The general set out a plan for reconciliation and reform on Friday in a televised address to the nation. Reforms could only be implemented if there was peace and stability and would take about a year, he said.
