Thailand elections: Party that nominated Princess Ubolratana for PM dissolved
Thailand’s most sensible courtroom has dissolved an opposition birthday celebration that nominated the king’s sister as its candidate for high minister.
Thai Raksa Chart is sponsored through exiled ex-PM Thaksin Shinawatra, who was once deposed through an army coup in 2006.
Analysts say dissolving the birthday celebration will make it more difficult for Mr Thaksin’s supporters to win the nationwide election due later this month.
Thailand is administered through the army, which took over in a coup 5 years in the past.
The Constitutional Court, which issued Thursday’s ruling, stated Princess Ubolratana’s nomination threatened the neutrality of the monarchy.
The birthday celebration’s government board contributors were banned from politics for 10 years, and it could now not contest the election.
The March vote would be the first because the present Prime Minister, Prayuth Chan-ocha, took energy in a 2014 army coup – overthrowing the democratically elected executive.
