BANGKOK -- Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha and his ministers handily won enough votes to remain in power on Saturday, when he and 10 other ministers faced a no-confidence vote in the lower house for the fourth time since 2019.

256 parliament members supported the prime minister in an expected result, as the opposition did not have the necessary 239 votes out of 477 to oust the leader from his post.
