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. In addition to several specially-picked civilian bodies to draft and scrutinize the permanent constitution, the military council will also have the right to review it, said Lt. Gen. Boonsrang Niumpradit, the military's deputy supreme commander.
