Junta to mark coup with video on achievements
The government is producing a video and a publication to present its achievements over the past four years after the military coup in May 2014, Deputy Prime Minister Air Chief Marshal Prajin Juntong said on Thursday.
The public relations material is to be released for the coup’s fourth anniversary on May 22, according to Prajin.
But he said no exact schedule has been set for a press conference that would accompany the release of the video and book.
The video officially details work completed by the 20 ministries over the past four years, according to the deputy PM. It also explains the country’s situation before the coup in May 2014 and mentions what this government has done in tackling the country’s problems, he said.
“There has been peace. The foundations have been established, the roadmap has been set and there is a new constitution,” Prajin added.
The air force chief said the video covers such matters as security, foreign affairs, society, education, public health, tourism, environment, laws, politics and administration. “It ends with the path to a new election,” he added.
The deputy premier said the video’s storyboard has been completed and is going to be presented to Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha for approval.
The book also covers the work by the five reform steering committees on public administration headed by the five deputy prime ministers, according to Prajin.
In 2014 he joined the coup-making National Council for Peace and Order while serving as commander-in-chief of the Royal Thai Air Force.
