Parliament will not cooperate if PM refuses to attend: Wisut
Deputy House Speaker Wisut Chainarun warned Thursday that the Parliament would not cooperate with the Cabinet if Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra continued ignoring her parliamentary duties.
He said Yingluck had not attended any Parliament meetings to answer the queries submitted by the opposition, even though her party had been informed about the necessity of her presence.
Democrat MP for Bangkok Rachada Dhnadirek had submitted a query asking if the premier had any intentions to secure the right to host the 2020 World Expo. Bhum Jai Thai partylist MP Supachai Jaisamut asked about the government's sincerity in protecting the monarchy in connection with controversies surrounding the Thai PBS controversial "Tob Jote" talk show.
Wisut said he would submit a formal letter to Yingluck, asking her to attend Parliament meetings, and if she refuses, the Parliament will have to sever its ties with the government.
