Party that nominated Thai princess for PM faces ban after king's rebuke

BANGKOK – The Thai political party that nominated a princess as its candidate for prime minister could be banned from a general election in March after an activist said on Sunday (Feb 10) he would file a petition seeking its dissolution.

Thailand’s Election Commission is to meet on Monday to consider the candidacy of princess Ubolratana Rajakanya, 67, who stunned the nation on Friday when she said she would be the prime ministerial candidate for a populist party loyal to ousted ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra.
