Thai PM says he will respect ruling of Constitutional Court, whatever the outcome

Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said today that he will accept and respect the verdict of the Constitutional Court, expected this Wednesday, whatever the outcome and he has not thought about a Plan B, in case the verdict goes against him.

 

The charter court is to deliver its verdict in a case in which he is accused, by the opposition Pheu Thai party, of illegally overstaying at the official residence of the army commander-in-chief, after his retirement from the post, without paying any rent,which is deemed to be a conflict of interest and in violation of the Constitution.  If the court rules against him, he will lose his premiership.

 

The prime minister said that he is not that worried about the court’s decision, adding that, if it is against him, it will make the decision about his future easier. Regarding the official residence of the prime minister, at Ban Phitsanuloke, which has been under renovation for quite a long time, the prime minister said that the house is too big for his family, adding that he will decide whether to move in once renovation work is completed.

Anybody who thinks the decision will go against Prayut is living in a dream world.

Yes, because he already knows what the verdict is. 

Fairly obvious, he will be found guilty and transferred to an inactive post.   Oops sorry, he is already in one. 😀

Not sure I understand the sentiment in this remark. 

 

Sounds a bit like he's saying that if he's s***canned then he doesn't even care anyway.

Right... But hasn't he said countless times that he has to be in his position and he's the only one who can do the job? Talking ad nauseam about how he works so tirelessly for the Thai people because he cares so much. I'm confused.

He's made no secret of his desire to get a seat, maybe as President, on the Privvy Council, and assuming the "Prem" role for this and the next monarch.
