Thailand's ruling military announced on Sunday an interim constitution which was to be followed by the naming of a prime minister to head the country for the next year. The announcement was made on television stations after King Bhumibol Adulyadej endorsed the document. The military abolished a 1997 constitution after seizing power from Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra in a bloodless coup Sept. 19. The new rulers say the previous constitution had too many "loopholes" which allowed Thaksin and his cronies to abuse power and engage in widespread corruption.
