Future Forward party leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit has been cleared by the Election Commission of any wrongdoing for allegedly posting misleading information in his biography on the party’s website.

 

EC secretary-general Jarungvidh Phumma said today that  a complaint filed by Srisuwan Janya of the Thai Constitution Protection Association accused Thanathorn of deliberately making a false claim that he was twice president of the Federation of Thai Industries while, in fact, he was only president of the Nakhon Nayok provincial industrial association

 

Srisuwan had sought a dissolution of the Future Forward party over the matter. But Jarungvudh said the Election Commission found no grounds to the accusation against Thanathorn and dismissed the case.
