Thailand's new politics and old uncertainty PublishedAug 7, 2018, 5:00 am SGT< h2>With Cambodia's election over, all eyes are on Thailand's promised polls next year. Even if they are finally held, they are unlikely to deliver the fundamental changes the country needs.

While Cambodia's poll on July 29 has yielded an elected dictatorship, Thailand has a dictatorship with no clear election date.

More than four years after it seized power in a May 2014 coup, Thailand's military government, led by General Prayut Chan-o-cha, appears intent on holding power indefinitely. It has repeatedly delayed election pledges.
