Thai court rules in favour of PM Prayuth Chan-ocha in term limit case

Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha attends a special parliament session to discuss the current political situation and the ongoing anti-government protests in Bangkok, Thailand.

The court was announcing its decision in a case filed by the opposition, which sought clarity on whether Prayuth’s time as leader of a military government formed after a coup eight years ago should count in his overall tally.
