Court accepts petition on Senate poll rules

Candidates for Senate election petitions asking the Constitutional Court to decide whether four contentious sections of the natural laws governing the surveys are in violation of the charter were accepted for consideration yesterday.

However, the jury did not issue any order, finding it did not foresee any significant ramifications from the Senate surveys moving. The court added that the Election Commission (EC ), which oversees the election, has the authority to intervene to fix any issues.

At the centre of the controversy are Sections 36, 40 ( 3 ), 41 ( 3 ) and 42 ( 3 ) of the Senate election law. While the three others deal with election at the area, municipal, and national levels with the exception of the three others, Section 36 requires the candidates to self-introduce themselves while Section 36 requires the candidates to do so on a personal level.

The jury voted 8: 1 to take as a verdict whether the rules violate Section 107 of the contract, which specifies the Senate choice method. State authorities were also given the order to send their thoughts to the courtroom within five days of receipt of the purchase.

Prior to the district-level vote on Sunday, the court made the decision to hear the case.

There were also issues about alleged collusion to rig the results, with caregiver Senator Somchai Swangkarn claiming that 149 candidates had already been designated as winners at the city and provincial levels prior to the vote.

Direkrit Janekrongtham, a different custodian senator, pleaded with the EC to look into allegations of collaboration before the district-level elections start tomorrow.

He claimed that the three-level elections will be closely related, and that if unfit individuals were allowed in, the whole procedure and the outcome may be questioned.

Another custodian senator, Wanchai Sornsiri, issued a warning yesterday to the public about a social movement attempting to take control of the country.

He wrote about the movement’s plans to stifle the Senate election approach, overthrow the government, and dissolve the principal opposition’s Move Forward Party on Facebook.

He claimed that the action wanted to create unrest so that there would be more bargaining power. He claimed that if the government were to be overthrown, things may return to normal or might even lead to a coup.

The EC announced yesterday the locations of the Senate elections for all three degrees, with the election’s location at Nonthaburi’s Impact Muang Thong Thani on June 26.
