Supporters of Thailand's ousted prime minister, Yingluck Shinawatra, will make a political protest over the ruling, a strategist and adviser has said.

Noppadon Pattama said the constitution meant Ms Shinawatra had no choice but to abide by the court's decision but that anti-government protesters had not achieved what they wanted, as more than 20 cabinet members were allowed to remain in position.
