Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha survived a vote of no confidence after opposition parties targeted him for economic mismanagement ahead of general elections expected by early next year.

This is the fourth such vote the leader faced since 2019. Prayuth was backed by 256 lawmakers on Saturday, while 206 voted against him, following a four-day debate. Ten other cabinet members also defeated the opposition parties’ censure motion.
