Petition aims to impeach Election Commissioners

More than 670,000 people have signed a petition at the change.org website calling for the Election Commission’s five commissioners to be ‘stood aside’ pending an investigation in the aftermath of the March 24 Thai election.

 

Petitioners contend that the election was marred by mistakes, blunders and tampering.

 

The campaign could actually become a legitimate threat to the five commissioners due to the large number of signatories.

One can only dream of a long, humiliating trial, but that is just wishful thinking.  Sadly, there are so many of those without even slightest understanding between what is right and wrong.

To be honest, I disagree, don't go after the EC commisioners, they just did what they were told to do. Go after the guys controlling the commisioners. But I guess the amnesty is still valid, so no chance.

Section 44 will take care of this

By "take care of this" I assume that you mean that impeachment would be stopped by Article 44.

 

But as the EC's were selected by the current Prayut-appointed NLA, I doubt the current Prayut-appointed NLA will vote impeachment of any EC member.

FUrthermore, if impeachment of the EC members were delayed until the new government was installed, EC impeachment is still unlikely to happen given the potential post-election slim margin of pro-PTP MP's over pro-military MP's in the House after the election - a three-fourth vote of the NLA is required for impeachment.

And no international election scrutineers to oversee the election process was all legal and above board.. It was previously reported that the EC said it was unnecessary as all the processes were neutral of government influence..
