Thailand: General elections postponed to early 2017

The Thai military government took the decision to postpone the democratic elections to 2017 to finalise the draft text of the new constitutional charter.

FTA negotiations between the EU and Thailand have been on hold since a military coup overthrew the elected government last year. The EU has made clear that a resumption of the FTA talks cannot be considered unless a democratic government is elected.
