Is Thai democracy failing? | DW News

Thailand’s Constitutional Court on Thursday postponed its decision on the legality of blocking the premier candidate of election winner Move Forward Party (MFP) from forming a government.
The court said it needed more time and evidence to decide whether to accept the challenge to parliament’s refusal to allow MFP’s Pita Limjaroenrat a second shot at the prime minister post.
The decision was pushed back until August 16.
This prolongs Thailand’s political deadlock, ongoing since the May election.
A third vote for prime minister due to be held on Friday will be postponed until after the court’s decision, house speaker Wan Muhamad Noor Matha said.
