PRIME MINISTER PRAYUT Chan-o-cha might probably stay on as head of government for several months after next week pending a ruling by the Constitutional Court over his contentious eight-year tenure, said a veteran lawmaker yesterday (August 16).

 

Deputy Sarng Anakhot Thai party leader Nipit Intharasombat posted on his Facebook page saying Prayut could possibly be allowed by the Constitutional Court to continue to perform as prime minister though his eight-year tenure maximumly provided by law is allegedly ending on the upcoming August 24 as concluded by academics, opposition legislators and critics of the unelected premier.

 

That date in August of 2014 marked the event in which Prayut became head of a military-installed government following a coup which he himself orchestrated as army chief three months earlier that year.

One would of thought the Courts would of been looking at this now, rather than waiting for a petition to be filed, to then set up their Committee's to brush it under the carpet or work out some farcical ruling...

 

Expect lots of talk/reminders on how its National security issue to comment negatively on the Court prior to their laughable rulings.

Thai laws do not apply to Prayut, he is the law. But I expect he has had his Generals uniform dry cleaned just in case he is ousted and has to lead another coup.

Of course, he's going to hang on as long as possible.   And if the Court rules against him, then he'll appeal and another year will pass.  Then who knows...another coup?

No more coup's, just rigged elections.

Well him and his cronies are quite detestable and have succeeded in bringing happiness only to his rich pals, the rest of the population, well they have nothing but distain for them.

Having said that what is the alternative to him ?  I fear that unless there is radical change, and I mean radical change to sweep out those whom really control this country,  then any alternative to Prayut could be someone far far worse when it comes to greater economic damage and people's rights here.

So in summary, whilst Prayut is a loathsome character, his replacement could be equally as loathsome but potentially far more dangerous to the country, other than of course for the ultra rich and their supporter(s).

Well said.

He's only the law as he's allowed to be. 

The higher and ultimate law keeps a low profile, yet cast the definitive say so.

He wants to be another Putin or Xi and stay in power until death.

The only appeal to a Constitutional Court decision is a coup. More likely the court could hold the complaint as imperfect, inappropriate and/or untimely to reject it. No court ruling required.
