Activists planned more demonstrations against Thailand’s government on Saturday, as the country’s prime minister and five cabinet ministers easily survived a vote of no confidence in parliament on Friday.

Prayut received 264 votes in favor and 208 votes against him in the election. Anutin Charnvirakul, the minister of health, and four other cabinet members also managed to avoid being censured in a similar manner to him.
To remove the Prime Minister from office, the opposition needed 242 votes out of the 482 total votes in the House of Commons.
Over the course of four days, lawmakers accused his administration of mishandling the pandemic and criticized him for the severe economic impact. They also criticized the government’s slow vaccine rollout, which was caused by the government’s failure to place advance vaccine orders and its decision not to participate in the international Covax vaccine-supply scheme.
Prayut has remained firm on his decisions.

(CNN) Activists planned more demonstrations against Thailand's government on Saturday, as the country's prime minister and five cabinet ministers easily survived a vote of no confidence in parliament on Friday. Prayut received 264 votes in favor and 208 votes against him in the election. Anutin Charnvirakul, the minister of health, and four other cabinet members also managed to avoid being censured in a similar manner to him. To remove the Prime Minister from office, the opposition needed 242 votes out of the 482 total votes in the House of Commons.

They also criticized the government's slow vaccine rollout, which was caused by the government's failure to place advance vaccine orders and its decision not to participate in the international Covax vaccine-supply scheme. Prayut has remained firm on his decisions. This is the third censure motion that the government has survived, and it comes at a time when pro-democracy protesters are planning additional demonstrations on Saturday. Recent protests have descended into violence, with security forces employing tear gas, water cannons, and rubber bullets against demonstrators who threw stones and firecrackers at them. Thailand has reported 1.2 million coronavirus infections and more than 12,000 coronavirus-related deaths, the majority of which have occurred since April and are caused by the Delta variant of the virus. With more than 23,000 cases reported in a single day, authorities reported the largest single-day increase in cases since the beginning of August. The vaccine rollout began in June, at the height of the country's most severe outbreak, during which people were unable to access medical care and some died at their homes. Approximately 13 percent of Thailand's population of more than 66 million people has received a complete vaccination regimen. The government has reduced its economic growth forecast for 2021 for the third time, from 1.5-2.5 percent to 0.7-1.2 percent, down from 1.5-2.5 percent previously. Last year, the economy contracted by 6.1 percent.
