Hundreds of protesters on Sunday marked the second anniversary of Thailand's latest coup with song, dance, speeches and pro-democracy banners, in the largest show of dissent since the military toppled an elected government.Yingluck was Thailand's first female prime minister and the sister of Thaksin Shinawatra, who was also toppled in a 2006 coup backed by the royalist establishment.Former army chief turned Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha says the coup was necessary to end more than a decade of political chaos and street protests.The military has promised to hold elections in the summer of 2017 but previous election pledges have slipped.Last week the military warned that any rejection of it might result in elections being further delayed.
