(UPI) -- Thailand's Constitutional Court rejected proposals from the ruling party, Pheu Thai, to make it so the Senate becomes fully elected and rejected to dissolve the ruling party.

Thailand has been politically divided since 2006 when former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra was overthrown in a coup. Half of Thailand's senate seats have been appointed since 2007.

The opposition has been demonstrating against the ruling party for the past three weeks.
