Thai princess disqualified from list of candidates for PM: Election Commision

BBC : BANGKOK, Feb 11, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – Thai Princess Ubolratana was formally
disqualified for running for prime minister for a party-linked to ex-premier
Thaksin Shinawatra, the Election Commission (EC) said Monday, days after a
stern royal command issued by her brother, the king, rebuked her candidacy.

“The EC today has announced the name of candidates excluding Princess
Ubolratana proposed by the Thai Raksa Chart party,” it said in a statement,
adding “because all royal family members are above politics.”
