Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha survived a no-confidence vote in parliament after a four-day debate in which the opposition criticized his government for its handling of the COVID-19 outbreak, the economy and alleged corruption.

The no-confidence motion against the premier was rejected by 272 lawmakers, while 206 voted supported it, according to a televised broadcast of the proceedings in parliament on Saturday. Nine other ministers also survived no-confidence votes as the coalition parties supporting Prayut’s government rallied behind them.
