Thailand’s Constitutional Court will meet on Thursday to consider a petition challenging Prayuth Chan-Ocha’s ability to stay on as prime minister after the former coup leader pushed back on claims his term began in 2014.

The nine-member court will hold a special meeting to review statements furnished by Prayuth’s legal team and others involved in the drafting of the 2017 military-backed charter, local newspaper Thairath reported on Monday, without saying where it got the information.
