BANGKOK - Newly-appointed Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Monday that he will submit his Cabinet line-up for royal endorsement within October.

He unveiled the timeframe in a speech after he received the King's endorsement to become the kingdom's 29th prime minister, The Nation reported.

He also vowed to work with integrity to solve national problems by giving priority to the people and the country, said the newspaper.

General Prayuth was appointed prime minister last Thursday by 191 out of 197 members of the military-dominated national assembly. He was the sole candidate for the post. Approval from King Bhumibol Adulyadej is a formality.
