Thai junta chief touts economy, coy on candidacy as elections loom


BANGKOK (Reuters) - The leader of Thailand's military government on Friday credited the junta with restoring a strong economic footing and called for "continuity", but he stopped short of saying whether he will be a candidate in long-delayed elections set for March 24.
