本月7日,泰國憲法法院下令泰愛國黨解散,理由是違反了王室不參政的禁令。亞洲時報(Asiatimes.com)報導

該黨此前提名泰國王室長公主烏汶叻(Ubolratana Mahidol)成為總理候選人,參加將於本月24日舉行的大選。烏汶叻是泰國國王哇集拉隆功的姐姐。

成立不久的泰愛國黨據悉與流亡的前總理他信關係密切,他信則與執政的軍方勢不兩立。軍政府將以公民力量黨的名義參選。

泰愛國黨預期將與親他信的泰黨在大選後組建執政聯盟。

然而,上月8日,泰愛國黨作出了這個讓外界驚訝的任命,在社交媒體上引發了廣泛的譴責。泰國公眾指責他信為了政治利益干涉皇室事務。

泰國政府撤銷了烏汶叻公主的候選人資格,然而,哇集拉隆功王室當晚在泰國國家電視台發表聲明,稱皇室成員凌駕於政治之上,因此烏汶叻的提名「極度不適合」。

1972年,烏汶叻爲了與一位美國醫生結婚,她放棄了泰國皇室公主頭銜以及部分皇室特權。然而,這位公主其後在1998年離婚。

但是,烏汶叻不受《對王室不敬罪》的保護。如果公開批評泰國國王、皇后以及王室成員,最高可被判處15年監禁。哇集拉隆功在今年5月正式加冕後,外界預計烏汶叻公主將恢復她的王室頭銜。

現時,烏汶叻居住在泰國曼谷大皇宮的一個府邸內,這也是泰國先王普密蓬從瑞士返回泰國後居住的地方。

泰國憲法法院在判決中指按照現有的選舉法律,提名烏汶叻「非法」將皇室捲入政治,並引述了國王關於皇室凌駕於政治的聲明。

判決認為提名烏汶叻是「精心設計的伎倆」來獲取政治利益,但並未指名道姓。分析人士普遍認為這一指責與他信有關。

流亡海外的他信被嚴禁參與泰國的任何政黨。泰黨領導人此前曾在香港與他信會面,因此一度遭泰國選舉委員會威脅將禁止該黨參選。但不知因何種原因,選舉委員會並未採取行動。

烏汶叻一直以來特立獨行。在宣布參選前數月,英國及香港的外交官們發現,她曾與他信會面。

一位要求匿名的泰國政府顧問向《亞洲時報》透露,樞密院的三位皇家顧問曾在上月6日前往德國慕尼黑,提醒泰王關於泰愛國黨計劃提名烏汶叻一事。
