Opposition walk out of censure debate after failing to get additional time

The four-day censure debate, targeting Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and 5 of his cabinet colleagues, ended before the 7pm agreed deadline, with a mass walkout by the Opposition, which had been thrown into disarray due to their mismanagement of the time allotted for debate. Four former Future Forward MPs were left frustrated by missing their chance to grill Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan and Interior Minister Anupong Paochinda.

 

The former Future Forward MPs, led by party-list MP Pita Limjaroenrat, successor to Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, held a news conference, separate from the rest of the opposition parties, after the end of the censure debate. Several of them accused Pheu Thai, the core opposition party, of mismanaging the time by allowing its MPs to speak beyond the time limits.

 

Bangkok MP Mr. Jirawat Aranyakanont said he doesn’t want to believe that there was collusion between Government and Opposition whips, aimed at sparing Deputy Prime Minister Prawit from the censure debate by putting him at the end of the list of ministers to be grilled, instead of being right after the Prime Minister.

The supposed censure "debate" was a rather disappointing show after all the opposition build-up about having hard evidence of various instances of corruption.
