An interim government will be formed in time to administer the state budget for the next fiscal year, but elections are at least 15 months away, coup leader Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Friday. 

Gen Prayuth also outlined a broader plan to reform the country before returning it to a government elected under conditions that all people can accept.

Under the timetable he announced in a televised address, an election could be held in 15 months at the earliest.
