EC asked to probe bonus plan

Srisuwan Janya, secretary general of the Association of Organisations for the Protection of Thailand's Constitution, Wednesday filed a petition the Election Commission.

In the petition, it urged the EC to investigate if the government’s recent decision to award Bt3.7 billion bonuses to civil servants violates the election laws. It also urged the EC to launch a probe on Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s plan to award Bt2 billion bonuses to its officers.

As these actions are ahead of the election, Srisuwan questioned if they would lead to unfair election results.
