Thailand’s constitutional court on Thursday suspended the MP status of a politician popular with millennial voters after he was accused of breaking an electoral law, a day before parliament was set to reopen.

Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, leader of the Future Forward Party and a former business tycoon, is accused of holding shares in a media company when he registered in February to run in the country’s March 24 election.

Thanathorn has rejected the accusation, saying he had transferred the stakes in V-Luck Media to his mother in January.
