BANGKOK – Thailand's military government has appointed a new committee to draft a post-coup constitution after an unpopular earlier draft was rejected in a move that has delayed elections until at least 2017.

Authorities said Monday the new 21-member committee will start work Tuesday and has six months to write its draft charter. It will need approval from the legislature before being submitted to a national referendum.
