Military-backed party wins Thailand election in confusing results

Military-backed party Palang Pracharat declared it had won the most votes, meaning junta leader Prayuth Chan-ocha (pictured in Bangkok) could stay in power. But its claims were met with immediate scepticism as one opposition leader said: ‘The numbers don’t add up’. Opposition party Pheu Thai, the former governing party ousted by the coup, appeared on course to win the most seats. Both sides said they will form a government but results for the 500-member parliament are not yet complete and a new PM will need support from the junta-appointed Senate to win power.
