BANGKOK, May 6 (Xinhua) -- The Thai Constitutional Court said Tuesday that it would deliver a verdict at noon Wednesday on the allegation that caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra had abused power in a personnel change.

Yingluck denied the allegation at the court on Tuesday, saying she did not violate any law or receive any benefit by transferring Thawil Pliensri from the post as secretary-general of the National Security Council (NSC) in 2011.

If the court rules against her, Yingluck could face removal from office and a ban from politics. Moreover, the verdict could also be extended to the entire caretaker cabinet.

The transfer was ruled unlawful by the Supreme Administrative Court in March, and Thawil has already been reinstated as the NSC chief.
