Thailand's Constitutional Court on Thursday ordered the dissolution of a political party for nominating the king's sister as its prime ministerial candidate.

The judge also banned the executive board members of Thai Raksa Chart party from politics for 10 years.

The ruling against the party and Princess Ubolratana Rajakanya Sirivadhana Barnavadi strikes a blow to the opposition's plans to win the March elections.
