Move Forward Party list MP-elect Nateepat Kulsetasit has resigned as an MP candidate of the party after police arrested her for drink-driving early yesterday morning.
Ms Nateepat told reporters she apologised to the public because she had disappointed people and would no longer be able to vote for the same-sex marriage legislation she had been pushing for.
She said she met some friends around 11pm on Monday and had three or four drinks. She denied resisting a police request to take a breathalyser.
Ms Nateepat, 46, was stopped at a checkpoint on Prasert Manukit Road in Lat Phrao district of Bangkok. A breath test showed she was over the legal limit.
Move Forward unofficially won 152 House seats including 39 list seats in Sunday’s election.
