Type of Government

The Kingdom of Thailand is a constitutional monarchy. Thailand has a prime minister and a parliament with two legislative houses, but their power has been limited by the military. Membership in the lower house is by election, but in the upper house it is by appointment, and the military is well represented, As of this writing it is uncertain how Thailand’s form of government will be affected by the military coup of September 2006. Current government data can be found at th Embassy of Thailand at: www.thaiembdc.org
