Does this look like someone that is going to hold an election anytime soon?

PM to meet Macron, May

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha will meet UK Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron during his Europe trip later this month to promote economic cooperation.

Gen Prayut is scheduled to meet the British premier on June 20 and the French leader on June 25, the last day of his trip, Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak said yesterday. A group of business people will also join the trip.

On Feb 12, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson paid a courtesy visit to the PM and invited him to visit the UK. He promoted UK expertise in science and innovation in aviation, education and security. Meanwhile, Thailand invited investors from the UK to invest in the Eastern Economic Corridor. On April 5, British's secretary of state for international trade, Liam Fox, visited Thailand and the visit resulted in the idea to set up a joint committee to look into economic cooperation, Mr Somkid said.

On June 25 when he meets the French president, Gen Prayut will follow up on cooperation matters after Thai Airways International (THAI) signed an agreement with Airbus to study business opportunities in aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) centre at U-Tapao Airport with an initial investment value of 2 billion baht.

He is not the only dictator who has or will meet EU country presidents or PM.

May calls for 'free elections' in Thailand
British Prime Minister Theresa May called for "free and open elections" in Thailand as she met with Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha in London on Wednesday.

During their sit-down, Gen Prayut assured May that Thailand would hold a general election early next year.

Gen Prayut, a former army chief who seized power from the civilian government in a 2014 coup, will next meet French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday as part of a highly publicised European tour.

"The Prime Minister urged continued progress towards free and open elections in Thailand in line with international standards, including restrictions on political parties being lifted at an early stage," her spokesperson said after the meeting.

Even though they have some experience of western straightforwardness, it must really get to the Thai politicians when challenged like this. They think that photo=ops are just for photos.
