Thailand: No chance of coup, says army

  • Army chief Narongphan Jittkaewtae has ruled out any chance of a military coup to end the ongoing crisis, saying political problems must be solved by political means.
  • Asked on 9 Nov 20 about the chances of the coup requested by a group of royalists on 8 Nov 20, the army chief replied: “Below zero.”
  • Royalists had called for a coup after thousands of anti-government protesters again rallied in support of demands for reform of the monarchy.
  • They later calmed down, instead opting to submit a petition giving the army their moral support in defending the royal institution.
