Charter court rules Pheu Thai’s Nawat disqualified as MP

Convicted Pheu Thai MP for Khon Kaen province Nawat Tohcharoensook lost his parliamentary status on October 16th, when he was suspended by the Constitutional Court from performing his duty as an MP, according to a ruling by a panel of Constitutional Court judges.

 

Nawat was sentenced to death, by Khon Kaen’s provincial court on September 24th, after it found him guilty of ordering gunmen to kill Suchart Kotethum, an assistant mayor of the Khon Kaen provincial administration organization, on May 3rd, 2013.

 

The ruling Constitutional Court noted that Nawat was not qualified to be an MP once he had been sentenced to death and, hence, his MP status had ended.

 

As a result of the disqualification, the Election Commission must hold a by-election in Khon Kaen’s Constituency 7 within 45 days to fill the vacant seat.

No doubt a dead man is worse than a parliamentarian sleeping during sessions. Pretty hard to accomplish anything with either.

So the process is now set. Those who want to hold on to the end have a line in the sand to avoid.

That's the defining line of not qualified to be an MP once sentenced to death and, hence, his MP status had ended everyone else business as usual🤔

That the courts have to actually rule on such a case is a joke. Surely a politician, in performing his duty would have to attend parliament as a minimum.

 

Or is this murderer, who is sentenced to death out on bail? Nothing would surprise me!!

 

Then again, MP status is ok for drug traffickers and treasonists, so the odd murderer should fit in and provide a balanced representation.
