As usual, the Royal establishment will use either the military to steal power or the kangaroo courts appointed by them to do so. These people know no shame when it comes to a double standard in the laws.
The elite can not win an election and have lost consistently for many years by larger and larger margins. This si not about stopping corruption for the royal establishment, it is about getting it back in their hands.

rpt7777. Disingenuous comment! No party has ‘won’ an election in Thailand. Whether it be old power (Royal Establishment as you put it) or nouveau riche (would be usurpers) no-one has ‘won’ a majority or “taken” power with a genuine mandate from the people. The current batch of self-enrichers care not a jot for the people and couldn’t run a market stall, as the current theft from their own support base will attest!
