KOMPAS.com - Thailand’s Constitutional Court has suspended Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha from his duties while it considers whether he has reached the end of his eight-year term.

The decision Wednesday came after opposition parties filed a petition arguing that Prayut, who took power in a 2014 coup, had exhausted his time in office.
