The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) on Friday (September 20) reported the personal finances of 80 members of the House of Representatives, 79 of whom were signed in after the March election, and one of whom recently resigned from the position.

 

This personal finances report is an addition to the NACC’s previous report of 415 MPs who had earlier submitted their asset lists in July.

 

Notable MPs whose assets and debts were revealed today include Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, leader of Future Forward Party (FFP); Pannika Wanich, the FFP spokesperson, Piyabutr Saengkanokkul, the FFP secretary-general; Parina Kraikup, an MP of Phalang Pracharat Party from Ratchaburi province, and Mongkolkit Suksintharanon, a party list MP and leader of Thai Civilized Party.

 

The two reports combined found Thanathorn was the wealthiest MP, with Bt5.63 billion in assets and Bt683 million in debts (shared with his spouse.) The second richest was Bhumjaithai party-list MP Nathee Ratchakitprakarn, with a shared Bt4.67 billion in assets and Bt177 million in debts. Third on the wealth list is Deputy Prime Minister and Public Health Minister Anuthin Chanwirakun, another Bhumjaithai party-list MP, who with his spouse claimed Bt4.19 billion in assets and Bt50 million in debts.

 

Satun MP Phibul Ratchakitprakarn, also of Bhumjaithai Party, had Bt2.38 billion in assets shared with his spouse and Bt42 million worth of debt. Industry Minister Suriya Juangroongruangkit, coming in fifth place, was the richest MP in the government coalition-leading Phalang Pracharat Party, claiming with his spouse Bt2.19 billion in assets and Bt0.6 million in debts.
