Thailand PM Prayuth Chan-o-cha survives no-confidence vote

 July 23, 2022  

Thailand: Despite being under intense political pressure, Prayuth Chan-o-cha, the prime minister of Thailand, was given good news on Saturday when he avoided yet another no-confidence vote in the house. Since 2019, he has faced four no-confidence votes during his time as prime minister.

The Thai opposition has been harshly critical of Prayuth in recent months, holding him responsible for “economic mismanagement” and corruption. Nevertheless, he was able to demonstrate his majority in the legislature by receiving 256 votes out of 477 cast, nine of which were cast as abstentions.
