The Pheu Thai Party Wednesday issued a statement to denounce the Constitutional Court's ruling against Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra as relentless conspiracy to try to remove the Pheu Thai from power.

The party also called on the people, who disagreed with the ruling, to express their opposition through peaceful demonstrations or any other peaceful way.
The party announced that it would send is former MPs to meet their constituents to explain the party’s belief that the ruling was a conspiracy against the party.
The party also denounced the ruling as a virtual coup against a democratic government.
“The Pheu Thai has been repeatedly pointing out that there has been a conspiracy to topple the democratic ruling system and to annul elections as well as destroying the democratic side all the time through cooperation between certain political parties, the People’s Democratic Reform Committee and certain constitutional organisations,” the party’s statement said. The statement was read by Pheu Thai legal advisor Bhokin Bhalakula.
The statement pointed out that there were conspiracy against the Pheu Thai because the Constitutional Court and the National Anti-Corruption Commission unusually rushed to conclude cases against Yingluck without allowing her and the government to provide enough defence witnesses.
The statement also alleged that the ruling violated Article 180 and Article 181 of the Constitution.
