The Election Commission [EC] on Tuesday resolved to file a charge against Future Forward Party leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit over an allegation that he had violated media shareholding rules.



Citing an EC panel’s investigation, there are grounds to allegations that Thanathorn owned or held 675,000 shares in V-Luck Media Company, the electoral agency said in a statement.

Thanathorn is accused of registering for the general election while still holding shares in the media company, an action prohibited by the Constitution and punishable by disqualification. 

Thanathorn’s lawyer earlier said that his client had fully complied with the law as he had transferred all his shares in the media firm on January 8, the day he returned from campaigning in Buri Ram.
