Bangkok: A Thai court on Wednesday August 24 suspended Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha from office while it considers a legal challenge to his term limit.

The development comes after opposition parties brought forward a case that Prayuth, who seized power in a military coup in 2014, has overstayed his term in office, the BBC reported.

Thailand’s constitution limits prime ministers to eight years in office.

Prayuth had retained office in 2019 under a military government guided election.

Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan, also a former army chief, will likely become the interim Prime Minister, according to the cabinet line of succession.
