The larger problem was going to be the lese majeste laws. The current government has prosecuted people for offending the monarchy simply because they spoke in opposition to government decrees that had the royal nod. All laws and decrees ultimately get the royal approval as they can't be formalized, otherwise. By this logic applied by the junta and their NCPO, therefore, any legit criticism of any act of the government can be considered a lese majeste violation.

How can you run against someone who has the immediately enforceable "Enemy of the People" dictum on their side? Whether it's a female or a male is not germane to the issue.
