House first meeting marred by protests and boos

The first meeting of the House of Representatives was anything but smooth and orderly as it was marred by protests and boos from several MPs, who were apparently venting their pent-up frustration after being gagged for the past five years under the junta’s rule.

 

The first sign of disorder emerged when the House secretary-general, Mr. Sorasak Pienwech, read an order by the Constitutional Court temporarily suspending Future Forward party leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit’s parliamentary membership over his media share ownership controversy. Thanathorn asked for permission to respond to the reading of the court’s order only to be rejected by Mr. Chai Chidchob, the senior-most MP, who assumed the role as the interim House speaker.

 

As Mr. Chai tried to explain to Thanathorn his status after the charter court’s ruling, Mr. Mongkolkit Sooksintharanont, leader of the Thai Civilized Party, loudly interjected urging the speaker to stop talking and allow the Future Forward party leader to make his statement.

Never know if there will be fist fights. But then again you got trained military A****** who got a free pass into the government house who would surely jump up and thump the anti junta ones, but from the sounds of it, things are off to a wonderful start. Poor Thanathorn. And with Chuan now the main guy in the lower house the Dems are surely going to ride with the Junta losing all face. Sad state of affairs, but I hope they turn their backs on the Junta, but the way I see it is that Chuan is one of those elite and his wife is a Khunying. One of the cronies that cannot hide his feathers.
