The United States flatly rejected a plan laid out by Thailand's junta chief to delay elections for more than a year to allow time for political reforms.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki insisted that Washington believed the best path forward was "to set a timeline for early elections and to facilitate an inclusive and transparent electoral process.

In his first televised national address after announcing the army takeover last week, junta chief Prayuth Chan-ocha said the new military regime planned to work towards returning the nation of 67 million people to democracy in around 15 months.
