Judges nominate Supachai for EC

The general assembly of Supreme Court judges yesterday selected senior judge Supachai Somcharoen as a candidate for the Election Commission.

As no other judge received the minimum 50 per cent of votes required for EC candidature, the general assembly will meet again to nominate another candidate on October 9.

Supachai Somcharoen is a former president of the Region 1 Appeals Court.

Five new members are being sought for the new term of the Election Commission.
