British Prime Minister Theresa May yesterday called for “free and open elections” in Thailand as she met Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha in London.

“The prime minister urged continued progress towards free and open elections in Thailand in line with international standards, including restriction on political parties being lifted at an early stage,” British media quoted her spokesman as saying.

From London, Prayut will proceed to Paris where he will meet French President Emmanuel Macron.
