Pheu Thai is angry

 

The opposition Pheu Thai party announced today (Thursday) that it will seek a ruling from the Constitutional Court over parliament’s resolution Wednesday night, opting for a change in the method used to calculate party-list House seats, which will benefit smaller parties at the expense of major parties, like the Pheu Thai, in the next general election.

 

A joint session of parliament endorsed the proposal of the minority faction of the House scrutiny committee vetting the organic law on elections, by 392:160 votes with 23 abstentions, to use 500, instead of 100, to determine the number of party-list seats which each contesting party will receive.

 

100 is the number of party-list seats and 500 is the total number of seats in the House, which includes 400 constituency seats and 100 party-list seats, compared to 350 constituency seats and 150 party-list seats in the current Lower House.

There were, however, rumours over the past two days that the powers within the government want to revert to the proportional representation formula, in order to prolong their stay in power, and these rumours were proven to be true when parliament voted overwhelmingly to change the method of calculation, said the party in the statement.

 

Nuff said !
