Thailand's military rulers have chosen Surayud Chulanont, a former army commander and close adviser to the country's powerful monarch, as interim prime minister following their coup, the auditor general said. "Yes, definitely, Gen. Surayud is the prime minister. He is the suitable person," Auditor General Jaruvan Maintaka told a small group of reporters late Thursday. Her comments were carried on an official government Web site on Friday. His appointment was expected to be announced this weekend or Monday, after it receives approval from King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
