Thailand's coup leader is expected to be picked as prime minister by the kingdom's new army-dominated national assembly, cementing the military's hold on power in the politically turbulent nation.

Army Chief Prayuth Chan-ocha is likely to be the sole candidate for the premiership when the 197-strong appointed assembly convenes tomorrow to select a new leader for the Southeast Asian country.

Prayuth seized power from an elected government in a bloodless coup on May 22nd, shortly after Yingluck Shinawatra was dismissed as prime minister in a controversial court ruling.
