Thailand’s Constitutional Court has dissolved a prominent opposition party and banned its leaders from politics for 10 years.
Thai Raksa Chart was found guilty of violating election laws for nominating Ubolratana Rajakanya Sirivadhana Barnavadi as their candidate for prime minister.
It was the third time the Constitutional Court dissolved a party backed by former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and could result in another unpredictable period in Thai politics.
