BANGKOK — The Election Commission on Monday afternoon declared that the eldest daughter of the late King Bhumibol cannot compete in the upcoming election as a candidate for prime minister.

 

The commissioners voted to shoot down the nomination just three days after His Majesty the King barred Princess Ubolratana Mahidol, 68, from the race for the top government job on the grounds that royal family members cannot get involved in politics. The commission cited the same rationale for its decision today.
