Thai Princess Nominated To Be Candidate For Prime Minister
According to a report by Reuters, on Friday, Princess Ubolratana Rajakanya Sirivadhana Barnavadi sent shockwaves through military-ruled Thailand’s politics by becoming the prime ministerial candidate for a party loyal to ousted premier Thaksin Shinawatra. Reuters reports that the elder sister of King Maha Vajiralongkorn has been declared a leading prime ministerial candidate for a party loyal to ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra in a March 24 general election. The move to nominate 67 year-old Princess Ubolratana reportedly breaks the long-standing tradition of Thai royalty staying out of politics. If approved, she would face off against the leader of the ruling military junta, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, who announced his candidacy on Friday.
