National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha is expected to take up the roles of both prime minister and NCPO chief in the new cabinet line-up. 

According to a source, Gen Prayuth will take the two top posts while former army chief Gen Anupong Paojinda is tipped to become a deputy prime minister and defence minister.

Gen Prayuth has a close relationship with Gen Anupong, the source said, adding that they served in the Queen's Guard and the Burapha Phayak task force together.
