BANGKOK, May 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Thailand’s military has announced the temporary suspension of the country’s constitution just hours after declaring a state coup in the South-East Asian nation.

In a televised address, the Thai military said that despite the constitution’s suspension, courts, senate and independent institutions, such as the Election Commission and the National Anti-Corruption Commission, continue to operate in a routine mode.

The current Thai Constitution was developed after the 2006 coup in the country, when then-Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra was ousted from power.
