Thailand’s opposition parties have decided to submit a petition, through House Speaker Chuan Leekpai, to the Constitutional Court this Wednesday to seek a ruling on Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha’s 8-year-term in office, according to Pheu Thai MP and opposition deputy chief whip Somkid Chueakong.

 

He said that opposition parties will also ask the Constitutional Court to order the prime minister to cease performing his duties, adding that the move has a slim chance of resulting in the House being dissolved by the prime minister, but he did not completely rule out such a scenario.

 

Somkid cited the case of the bill to amend the organic law on election, to revert the use of 500 as the basis for the calculation of party-list seats which, he said, should have been completed on August 10th. Chuan, in his capacity as president of the parliament, has, however, scheduled another joint sitting of the two Houses this Monday to vote on the controversial bill.

I suppose it's better - if not the same - as sat twiddling your fingers and being totally useless in any outcome due to the rigging

8 years in power and get him out, or vote him out... Pryut must be squirming
