Princess Ubolratana, the eldest sister of the uncrowned Thai king Maha Vajiralongkorn, in the parliamentary elections of march 24, no throw to the prime minister. Her name is not on the list of approved candidates, since all members of the royal family are ‘above politics’.

That has the election commission Monday announced.

The 67-year-old princess took his place last Friday on the side of the wealthy Shinawatra family, and his populist party Thai Raksa Charta. Ubolratana was as topkandidate of the party nominated. Went openly against the military junta since the military coup of 2014, Thailand is in power.

The Shinawatra’s delivered the past years, two times the prime minister, but both Thaksin as his sister Yingluck Shinawatra, were made by the army overturned.

‘Very inappropriate’

King Maha Vajiralongkorn has called the candidacy of his sister Friday night on television, “very inappropriate” and inconsistent with the constitution. Thai Raksa Chart scribbled then Saturday back and asked to conform to the ‘royal orders’.
