Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Sunday night said he respects the election results which see Move Forward Party emerge as the top winner.

Speaking briefly to journalists as he was leaving the headquarters of the United Thai Nation Party, Prayut thanked voters for their support for the party. “I will continue to perform my duty to the best of my ability in whatever capacity. And I will continue to serve the nation, religion and the monarchy for the rest of my life,” he said.

The outgoing prime minister said he wished the country peace and order. “I have respect for the democratic process and the election results,” he said.

Prayut is a prime ministerial candidate of UTN which is trailing far behind other major parties in the ongoing vote counts.
