Thailand's ruling military, which has promised to hand over power to an interim civilian regime by early next week, announced Monday it will have a hand in approving a new permanent constitution. The military has said it will hold elections by October next year after drafting a new permanent constitution to replace the one it scrapped when it ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra last week.

Boonsrang Niumpradit, the military's deputy supreme commander.
