Thai court suspends PM Prayuth pending term limit review

Summary by Ground News
Thailand's Constitutional Court on Wednesday suspended Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha from official duties after it decided to hear a petition to review his legally mandated eight-year term limit. Thailand's 2017 constitution bars the prime minister from serving more than eight years in total. Opposition parties say Prayut, who took power in a 2014 coup, has reached the limit. But supporters say he has been the PM from 2017 or in 2019. Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan, 77, will likely become the interim prime minister.
