Thai Princess Disqualified As PM Candidate By Election Panel

According to Reuters, Thailand’s election panel has disqualified the sister of the king from running for prime minister.

The king had previously stated that royalty should be “above politics." The Election Commission released an official list of prime minister candidates and the princess's name was not included.

The panel said it excluded her from the list "because every member of the royal family comes within the application of the same rule requiring the monarch to be above politics and to be politically neutral."
