The Constitution Court on Wednesday rejected a challenge to the government's rice pledging scheme, saying the petition is outside its field of jursdiction. 

Moreover, the petitioners were not the party whose rights and liberties had allegedly been violated by the scheme, the court ruled.

Court spokesman Pimol Thampithakpong said the ruling was unanimous, with a vote of 9-0.
