BANGKOK — The Future Forward Party on Thursday demanded that the Election Commission issue a written order if it wants to ban them from accepting cash donations and said the move undermines the party’s ability to compete in elections.

 

The move came after the commission called the party Wednesday and said cash donations were forbidden, considering them a breach of junta order No. 57/2014 banning political activities.
