Ignoring reporters’ queries about whether a House dissolution is imminent, Prayut only said that there is a possibility that the two-ballot electoral system will cause organic laws to be rejected.

“I don’t have any secret tricks but am confident and will continue working for citizens and the country,” he said, adding that the current political situation is not worrisome.
