Thailand's king approved a post-coup Cabinet lineup, media reported Monday, ushering in a post-coup government that is expected to rule the country for one year until elections in October 2007. The Cabinet lineup was announced in a televised broadcast on the military-run Channel 5 and other major Thai channels. Key posts went to well-respected economists, high-profile civil servants and a retired military officer. Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont, who was appointed by the military after the Sept. 19 coup that ousted former premier Thaksin Shinawatra, had submitted his Cabinet selections to King Bhumibol Adulyadej and needed a royal endorsement before making the lineup public.
