Thailand's Constitutional Court made the announcement in a statement Thursday, just a day after the Election Commission recommended the Thai Raksa Chart Party be dissolved over its Feb. 8 nomination of Princess Ubolratana Mahidol.
King Maha Vajiralongkorn issued a royal order just hours after his sister's nomination that deemed the political bid inappropriate and unconstitutional. The court said the charges are being forwarded to the party, which will have seven days to respond. The next hearing will be Feb. 27.
If the party is dissolved its board members could be banned from politics.
