Future Forward party leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit said today (Saturday) that he is not worried about the Election Commission’s meeting next week to consider the case involving the party receiving two loans, totaling 191 million baht, from Thanathorn.

 

Shortly after the Office of the National Anti-Corruption Commission disclosed asset declarations by about 80 MPs, including Thanathorn, EC Secretary-General Jarungvith Phumma said that he would submit the case to the election commissioners for consideration next week.

 

According to the NACC’s Office, Thanathorn’s declared assets of about 5.137 billion baht, including two loans he granted to the Future Forward party this year. The first loan of 161 million baht, signed on January 2nd, is to be repaid in three years with 7.5% interest per annum. The second loan of 30 million baht, signed on April 11th, is to be repaid in one year at a 2% interest rate.

Hang in there khun  Thanathorn, look at history 

Robert the Bruce, as an example,

It's certainly a long game. I suspect that the intention is that Thanathorn will be banned from political activity, and Future Forward will be disolved; but not until the time is right. That time will be close enough to the next election to prevent a successful regeneration.

 

Worked last time...

So the EC want to investigate FFP for having transparent sources of funding?

A loan to get things off the ground is one way to make a new party work. At least they are not hiding where the money came from.

Yes, just another bump in the road to keep him from being an actual working MP. Should take years.
