BANGKOK: Leader of Thailand's Future Forward Party Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit on Tuesday (Jan 21) vowed to "march forward" after the Constitutional Court ruled to clear his party from charges of attempting to undermine the system of constitutional monarchy.

Thanathorn told supporters at the party's headquarters shortly after the court verdict that "Although I am no longer a member of parliament, I will join my party in visiting all parts of Thailand to listen to ideas and suggestions from people from all walks of life."

The Constitutional Court earlier on Tuesday cleared Future Forward Party of charges that it had tried to undermine the democratic system under the monarchy.

However, the Future Forward Party is facing another court battle with the Thai Constitutional Court.

The latter has yet to rule on a request by the Election Commission to have the party dissolved on the grounds that it received loans from its leader in violation of the Political Parties Act. - Xinhua/Asian News Network
