No law for the junta’s party II

24 12 2018

The Palang Pracharath Party’s “fund raising” banquet last week is causing some rather odd denials of law breaking.

Mostly, the denials have revolved around the state agencies alleged to have paid huge amounts for banquet tables. This despite the publication of a photo of the seat plan by ISRA News.

Most recently, “former election commissioner Somchai Srisutthiyakorn has urged the Election Commission (EC) to rev up moves to probe a recent fund-raising event organised by the Palang Pracharath Party (PPRP).”

When he was at the EC Somchai was never one who was above political bias and bending rules, so this is suggestive that his views reflect a reasonable perspective on what’s going on at the EC;  he should know, right?

Somchai now with his buddies at the Democrat Party, said “he will give the poll-organising agency seven days to take action or he will file suit against the EC for dereliction of duty under Section 157 of the Criminal Code.” He added: “The EC must investigate if the cabinet ministers who are at the helm of the PPRP used their positions to solicit funds for the party, which is prohibited by the law governing political parties…”.

No electoral law seems to apply to the devil party or to the military junta.
