Tag: Princess Ubolratana
Thai Raksa Chart's move to bring in Princess Ubolratana for premier is a shocking move, bringing Thai royalty to frontline politics for the first time since the 1932 establishment of a constitutional monarchy.
The princess's comments comes a day after the commission dropped her name from an official list of prime minister candidates.
This puts an end to a stunning, short-lived candidacy by echoing King Maha Vajiralongkorn's words that royalty should be 'above politics'.
The much-anticipated election is set for March 24 and will be the first since a 2014 coup.
