STR quetions Nikom's status as Senate speaker

Anti-government protesters led by Students and People's Network for Thailand's Reform (STR) Monday submitted a letter to the Senate's secretary-general questioning status of Senate Speaker Nikom Wairatpanij.

The STR said Nikom, an elected senator, should have stopped performing his duty as his 6-year-term had ended. The group asked the Senate secretariat to clarify the issue within a week.

Senate's secretary-general Norarat Pimsen said the office would have to study the issue first.
