The Constitutional Court has accepted a petition from opposition MPs questioning Prayut Chan-o-cha’s qualifications to hold the post of prime minister.

The Court announced its decision on its website, saying the petition had been signed by a total of 110 MPs from various opposition parties but declaring that Prayut was free to continue carrying out his duties as PM until it reached a ruling.

Prayut has 15 days to make his own submissions over the petition.
The Court has also accepted a petition from an individual demanding the dissolution of the Future Forward Party following frequent public comments by its party leader, Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, and its secretary-general, Piyabutr Saengkanokkul, against the monarchy.

The two men also have 15 days to submit their rebuttal of the allegation.
