EC should investigate whether Thaksin meddled in Pheu Thai’s affairs: Prawit

The Election Commission should investigate to see whether former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra had recently interfered in Pheu Thai Party’s internal affairs in violation of the law, Deputy Premier and Defence Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan said on Monday.

 

Meanwhile, a senior EC official said the agency would need to “look into the matter in detail” before it could determine whether the former PM had violated the Political Parties Act.

 

“I haven’t seen the full interview yet, so I can’t tell if the law was violated. We need to look into this matter in detail,” said Krit Urwongse, deputy secretary-general of the EC.

 

The new law governing political parties prohibits interference in their internal affairs by non-members. 

 

Violating individuals risk a jail term and a political ban, while violating parties could be dissolved.

 

Thaksin recently forecast that Pheu Thai, in which he has retained much influence, would win some 300 out of 500 seats in the House of Representatives in the next general election.

 

Prawit, who is in charge of security affairs, also maintained on Monday that the election would “certainly be held in February next year”.

 

Asked by Government House reporters whether Thaksin’s remark had caused any political impact, Prawit replied that all parties were being affected. 

 

When asked if the EC should investigate this matter, he said: “The media should prod them to do so.”

 

The deputy PM was also asked to comment on a planned lecture by Thaksin at a university in Sweden early next month, which has been viewed as his latest political move. 

 

He responded by saying that Thaksin had often made such moves throughout the past four years.

 

He also noted that the fugitive former prime minister was facing many criminal cases stemming from his tenure in power, although one of the cases had seen its statute of limitations expire on October 21.

 

He added that under a revised law, however, corruption-related cases now had no statute of limitations.

 

Thaksin has been in self-exile since 2008 after fleeing the country shortly before the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Political Office Holders sentenced him to two years in jail for abuse of power while in office.

Still require the fabricated and continuing Thaksin boogieman to justify their false course.

 

Becoming quite wearisome.

He didn't get done for any of it while in power though did he? So there is some hope that Prawit will one day get prosecuted for corruption over his dodgy watches, especially since he has been kind enough to point out corruption has no statute of limitations. Sooner or later the truth will come out.

You think he would actually hang around do you, rather than following in Thaksins footsteps and live out his days with his ill gotten gains overseas? I am sure he is a total crook, but I don't ever see him doing any time, and neither will Thaksin.

While at it, could the Election Commission investigate Prawit and Prayuth's tacit support/involvement with Palang Pracharat and direct involvement of standing ministers? Surely, what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Oops, I forgot that the EC is a lackey of the Junta.

Why wouldn’t the puppet master interfere in the workings of his creation.

Bit rich coming from the Rolex General whilst the junta and its lackeys are openly electioneering plus throwing money around. Also, he says this as if he's whiter than white....pass the barf bag, please.

If the truth is ever told…we will undoubtedly see that the Toadman’s watch collection is little more than a very small drop in a very big corruption bucket.

A Pot Kettle Black seems to be the running theme.

So the overly censored media now drives junta concocted government bodies ?  What a totally nonsensical statement.

There is only so much you can do with facebook.  Thai government data collection overseas is weak.

He did not get done because he run like the coward he is and running is almost always an admission of guilt. I do agree fully about your hope (however slim) that Prawit might be investigated for corruption.

Agree, thaksin is weerisome, someday he might realize that his greed and arrogance and lack of respect for the law had done great damage to Thailand.

 

And he's not the only one.

 

Thaksins damage is driven by the power of his money and he has no hesitation to use that power regardless of ethics and morals and his greed for more money an power.

Like Thaksin or loathe him, since when is giving a personal opinion on how you consider a party will perform interferring in an election? This is just grasping at straws in order to bar PTP from said election. How low can this junta go? But but Thaksin....

Well, with the threat from the new army commander all that is now needed is to kick start unrest...dissolving a popular party might be worth trying eh? See if that causes unrest and if it does coup...coup...coup. If doesn't well that's okay too because it'll be one less party to oppose the regime...win...win...

That could be true, but how is giving an opinion that Pheu Thai would win 300 of the 500 seats interfering in the party's internal affairs?

EC should investigate whether Prawit, Prayut and all their grovelling lackeys are bent as a nine bob note and bleeding this country dry.

I suspect it's more than "...giving an opinion that Pheu Thai would win 300 of the 500 seats..."

This is what the Act spelt out:- 

 

The law prohibits political parties from allowing outsiders to influence its internal affairs and bars individuals from controlling or dominating the internal affairs of a party. 

 

How does giving an opinion considered as influencing, controlling or dominating. The junta has already rigged the election to their advantage and yet know they can’t beat Thaksin. Now they trying to do a Hun Sen. I hope the electorates will teach all those pro military parties a lesson and humiliate them in the polls.

Examples, the recent meetings in HK and wherever attended by many of his old guard.

 

Did they talk about the quality of HK ice cream?

He doesn't even attempt to hide is involvement and neither do his minions.

 

All about him showing he can flaunt the law or trying to provoke a reaction. Then he'll protest the elections aren't fair because his wholly owned and controlled family political vehicle has been banned.

 

The farce continues. Only this time some of the minions are defecting because being away from the trough for so long is beginning to hurt!!

And Thaksin was trying to emulate his eternal buddy and co-mega crook for years. Only he couldn't pull it off because he wanted only himself to be the big big cheese.
