Former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has been impeached by the National Legislative Assembly (NLA), a body whose members were handpicked by the Thai military junta after the 22 May 2014 coup that ousted Yingluck’s elected government.

190 members of the 220-member NLA voted in favor of impeaching Yingluck this morning for allegedly failing to stop corruption in her administration’s rice-pledging scheme.

Legitimacy of decisions is flawed. After all, there’s no democracy in Thailand not to mention that the land of smiles is still under martial law.
