Thailand's Constitutional Court dismissed a second and final funding irregularities case against the ruling Democrat Party on Thursday.

The court said that the head of the Election Commission did not follow the correct legal procedures in filing the case against Thailand's oldest political party.

The decision follows a similar ruling on Nov. 29, meaning the party of Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva faces no more legal challenges.

A guilty verdict in either case could have led to the party's dissolution and a political ban on Abhisit and several ministers.
