A Right Royal Rumble - Palace Pushes Princess Out Of Race

Dr James Gomez, Chair

On Friday, the Thai Raksa Chart party made a bold move by nominating Princess Ubolratana, the elder sister of King Maha Vajiralongkorn, as their candidate for Prime Minister. The nomination of Princess Ubolratana was described as a “political earthquake” in the country, which has been ruled by a military government since May 2014. However the following day the Palace issued a statement denouncing the candidacy as "inappropriate" and "unconstitutional". We speak to James about the reactions to this and his thoughts about the nomination process.
