Defiant Thanathorn rejects court order, vows to pursue prime minister’s post




A defiant Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit announced Thursday night that he disagreed with the Constitutional Court’s order to suspend his parliamentary membership and vowed to press ahead with his pursuit of the prime minister’s position in the new parliament.


Speaking at a media conference, held at the party’s head office a few hours after the Constitution Court accepted for consideration his media share ownership case from the Election Commission and ordered his parliamentary membership to be suspended temporarily, the firebrand Future Forward party leader questioned whether the court and the EC had been fair to him, citing the secretive manner in which his case had been handled.


As far as the EC is concerned, Thanathorn claimed that the Commission had wrapped up his case and sent to the Constitutional Court before the investigating panel had finished its probe and it was still due to question more witnesses, scheduled for May 24th.
