BANGKOK (NNT) - The government and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Chuan Leekpai, have confirmed that they do not have issues with the opposition’s demand for an investigation into the alleged violation of ethical standards by the Prime Minister and Defense Minister, Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha, in failing to recite his oath of office fully. The opposition was advised that it could proceed with the legal process.

 

The House Speaker said the opposition can lodge such a petition with the Office of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) at any time, even though the first parliamentary session had already ended. Mr. Chuan noted that he will look into the legal elements of the petition. He said the rulings of the Constitutional Court constitute a binding precedent. However, this particular case is an order, not a ruling, and a postscript added to the order, must also be acknowledged.

 

The Deputy Prime Minister, Prof. Dr. Wissanu Krea-ngam, said on Friday, that the issue is up to the opposition to ponder, and he has yet to assess whether a no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister will take place. He said the government has performed its duties according to the law during the general debate. If the opposition still has questions, it has to proceed with the legal process.
