The Election Commission (EC) has agreed to file a case in the Constitution Court seeking dissolution of the Future Forward Party overs its leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit allegedly illegally granting loans to the party.

 

The EC petition cites Article 72 of the organic law on political parties, which prohibits holders of political positions from receiving money, properties or any profit from illegal sources both knowingly and unknowingly.

 

However, Narinpong Chinapak, president of the Law Council of Thailand, has argued that Thanathorn’s loans are not an illegal source of money as he has made contracts according to the law.

 

He also said that the EC petition did not seem to be completely transparent and tried to illogically link the loan case with Article 72.

One day this is going to go the other way and it isn't going to be pretty.

Unfortunately I doubt if I'll live to see it.

The major parties must be very concerned about the strength of the Future Forward Party to go to such lengths to get the Constitution Court seeking dissolution .

The Constitutional Cpurt does not concern itself with layers relating to (possible violation of) the constitution.  They said as much when people asked the CC to look into the goverment's oath not meeting what is dictated by the constitution.
