The Nation reports that The Dictator will appoint 30 new members of the puppet National Legislative Assembly and that “[a]lmost all” of these “will be high-ranking military officers…”.

Would anyone have expected anything else from this military dictatorship?Prayuth Puppetry

It was once claimed that an expanded NLA was necessary for getting legislation in place before an “election.”

In fact, though, the positions are used to reward General Prayuth Chan-ocha’s supporters and to build his “campaign” to remain premier for years to come.

The appointees will “include those who are active in the Armed Forces or who retired at the end of last month.” All will do exactly as the dictatorship requires and will collect the salaries and allowances for acting like cloth hand puppets for The Dictator and his junta.
