Thai princess disqualified from prime minister bid

Officials have disqualified a Thai princess from running for prime minister in next month's general election after her brother, King Maha Vajiralongkorn, said her nomination would be "inappropriate."

This princess could be Thailand's next prime minister

Thailand's king has strongly criticized his sister's announcement she will stand in elections next month -- an unprecedented move that could upend the political landscape and give the revered monarchy an overt role in politics.
