the Thai king torpedoed the bid in a sharply worded statement the same day that said bringing senior royal family members into politics is against tradition, national culture and "highly inappropriate."

A wise King. The Princess may have been a great PM, but the love of the King's family in Thailand is tremendous that few, if any, would vote against her regardless of job performance. Best to avoid that conflict.
