Thailand’s caretaker Cabinet has appointed a new acting Prime Minister after a court removed Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra from office.

Ms. Yingluck and nine Cabinet members were forced from power on Wednesday by the Constitutional Court, which found her guilty of abuse of power.

Shortly after the ruling, her remaining Cabinet announced that Deputy Prime Minister Niwatthamrong Boonsongpaisan would become the interim leader.

The judgment marks the latest twist in Thailand’s long-running political crisis.

But it does little to resolve the turmoil as it leaves the country in limbo and primed for more violence.
