Court removes Thai PM from office, deputy Niwattumrong Boonsongpaisan appointed caretaker

BANGKOK: Thailand’s Constitutional Court Wednesday dismissed Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and nine ministers for abuse of power, leaving the government clinging to power but the nation still locked in a political crisis.

The cabinet swiftly appointed a deputy premier – Niwattumrong Boonsongpaisan – as Yingluck’s replacement as the ruling party struggled to regain its footing after the judicial blow.

The court, which has played a key role in deposing Shinawatra-linked governments in recent turbulent years, ruled unanimously that Yingluck acted illegally by transferring a top security official in 2011.
