More legal moves to overthrow Sukhumband's win
The Pheu Thai Party is pushing forward with its legal challenges to have results of the Bangkok gubernatorial election and the win by Democrat candidate Sukhumbhand Paribatra nullified.
Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yoobamrung has even said Pongsapat should delay his return to his police post until the EC has made its decision on whether to endorse Sukhumbhand.
Former senator Ruangkrai Leekijwattana Monday filed a petition with the Bangkok Election Commission, seeking an investigation against Democrat PhangNga MP Party Jurin Laksanawisit for allegedly mudslinging against the Pheu Thai Party during the Bangkok election rally.
Ruangkrai asked the Election Commission (EC) to probe whether Jurin had violated local election law that could result in the dissolution of the Democrat Party while he was taking the rally stage at Benjasiri Park to help the Democrat Party gubernatorial candidate. Ruangkrai quoted Jurin as saying "the second group will not vote for the Pheu Thai because they will not choose a party which set the country ablaze."
