Thailand: Opposition files no-confidence motion against “flawed” PM

“Thailand’s opposition parties on Wednesday filed a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha and 10 cabinet ministers, accusing them of graft, economic mismanagement and of undermining democracy and clinging to power. The opposition expects the censure debate to take place next month and hopes it will bring down Prayuth’s 17-party government. It would be the last confidence vote Prayuth, 68, will face before his term ends in March next year. Prayuth, a retired general who first came to power in a 2014 coup, has weathered three previous confidence motions since a 2019 election that kept him in power.” (06/15/22)
