The political situation in Thailand remains uncertain. The Thai Constitutional Court ruled on 2 December to dissolve three government coalition parties, including the People’s Power party, and banned executive members of the parties, including Prime Minister Somchai, from politics for five years. Efforts to form a new coalition government are continuing. We cannot rule out the possibility of further demonstrations and violent unrest. We continue to urge all parties to resolve their differences peacefully, respecting the rule of law and Thailand’s democratic institutions.
