Chuan Leekpai

 

President of the National Assembly Chuan Leekpai on Thursday (January 23), submitted a request to the Constitutional Court, seeking its ruling on the verification of the Bt3.2 trillion budget bill for fiscal year 2020 after two Bhumjaithai MPs (Chalong Toedweerapong and Natee Ratchakitprakarn) were accused of casting their vote without being present during the voting process.

 

If their action was ruled unconstitutional, it will not affect the salary payments of government officials but projects' funding will be deliberated on a case-by-case basis, said the president.

 

"I have to admit that this place [parliament house] is not yet ready for MPs who have yet to be allocated their own seats. They are still using the Senate's Chandra conference room for meetings. If MPs have regular seats, we would know who's voting. But, it largely depends on the responsibility of each individual," Chuan said.

 

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha was also concerned over delay of the bill's passage since it would affect the country's development plan.

The constitutional court.  Interesting reading on wiki.  Created by the 1997 constitution which has been tossed out.  Not the same as the Supreme Court.  No real idea how anything it rules on will or will not be enacted upon or enforced by what agency?  Even using the words "constitution" in a country so laden with coups is almost an oxymoron.

 

Constitution:  " relating to an established set of principles governing a state: ".  Whew.  Good luck with that in Thailand

So tell your lackeys not to cheat. If you keep coming out with statements like, “we follow the law”, then hold your hands up when your team doesn’t. Your hypocrisy Is just pushing the public closer to boiling point.

Casting their vote without being present during the voting process, says it all, just a bunch of corrupt prats.
