Thai body seeks to dissolve party that nominated princess for PM

The Thai party that nominated the king’s older sister for prime minister in next month’s election is facing dissolution. The election commission has recommended to the top court that Thai Raksa Chart be dissolved. Earlier, the commission declared Princess Ubolratana ineligible to run, saying royals should be “above politics”. Thai Raksa Chart is linked to the exiled former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
