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 governmentâ€™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 Administrationâ€™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.
