The ruling Pheu Thai Party said Tuesday it would defy the Constitutional Court's ruling on the election, even before it knows what its decision is.



Bhokin Bhalakula, Pheu Thai’s legal expert, said the party had yet to discuss what to do if the court nullifies the election. But it wanted to show that it felt the hearing was not right. 
The statement of the party alleged the Ombudsman had no right to forward a petition on the poll to the Constitutional Court as there was no conflict between the Royal Decree on the House dissolution, which stated February 2 as the only election date, and the charter. 
The party also claimed that behaviour by six independent agencies including the Election Commission, seeking to organise talks to resolve the political crisis, was suspicious.
