Ninety government MPs have signed a letter, addressed to parliament president Chuan Leekpai, requesting that the Constitutional Court rule on the legality of the budget bill for the 2020 fiscal year, after at least 2 proxy were cast on the budget bill.

 

Government chief whip, Mr. Wirat Rattanaseth, said today (Wednesday) that the MPs would like the Constitutional Court to rule on whether proxy voting is contrary to Section 120 of the Constitution and, if it is, whether the whole budget bill is affected, or only the sections endorsed by proxy votes, and what should be done next.

 

At least, two government MPs, Phatthalung MP Chalong Thoedveerapong and party-list MP Mrs. Nathee Ratchakitprakarn, were found to have cast their votes while they were absent from parliament during the debate in January.

Probably 20 million cast votes for the current government that were either fictional or dead

Casting your vote from unusual locations is perfectly acceptable when one is unusually wealthy I would have thought 🤔

A Parliamentary majority and a bill that should have no problems but they still have to cheat!

I read it's a 174 now. Anywho, Prayut should be very proud of these politicians who are pointing out this grave malpractice. After all, he had the coup because he wanted to end behaviour like this. 

 

I look forward to seeing Prayut condemn these two MPs who voted without being present. I wonder if he will have them kicked out.

The funny thing (bad for government) is that in the Bangkok post there is a ruling of the constitutional court shooting down Yingluck her budget bill because votes were casts for MP's that were not there.

 

If this time they rule differently it would be a clear sign for all to see that they are bias. I doubt they dare this so this budget bill will get a lot of flack.

 

 

Yes, many of us on here have been umming and ahing for a while as to whether or not this government is bias. We've been waiting with bated breath for ages for a clear sign.

Your comparison of this mob with PTP is ridiculous.

What are you, some kind of obsessive or a closeted fan of dictatorship?

PTP were ALWAYS elected and ALWAYS had the courts against them while this mob have never won an election and have the courts in their pocket.

Next thing you know, you'll be telling us all that apples are oranges.

Bizarro.

I will not go into it too much as it will derail the topic. My point is that both sides are total hypocrites. The junta had an drug minister the PTP attacked it and the junta defended him The PTP had a murder (ordered a hit) and their party defended him while the junta attacked him.

 

That shows the total moral loss on both sides as both sides should have kicked their tainted MP out as fast as they could instead of focusing on the enemy and protecting their own.

 

Shows just total moral bankruptcy on both sides. Only side i like is Future Forward.
