Thailand's military junta nominated to be PM

Thailand's military junta General Prayuth Chan-ocha has been nominated prime minister by a legislature he hand-picked, nearly three months after he seized power in a coup d'état.

Political analysts say the army is now likely to create a much more limited form of democracy before allowing elections, which Prayuth has planned for the end of 2015.

    A "junta" is a group, not an individual. I suggest that Prayuth's position be referred to as "caretaker military dictator".
