According to a source, the Move Forward Party ( MPP ) on Tuesday submitted its written defense to the Constitutional Court in the dissolution lawsuit brought against the main opposition party by the Election Commission (EC ).

Following a ruling from the Constitutional Court on January 31 that claimed the MFP’s push for modifications to Section 112 of the Criminal Code, also known as the der guess law, indicated that it was trying to undermine the constitutional monarchy, the EC requested its dissolution. According to the EC, the court’s decision provided basis for breakdown.

The court accepted the EC’s plea for dissolution on April 3. The judge allowed the MFP’s defense to submit its defense distribution on the final time. At the group’s demand, three submission deadline additions were originally granted.

According to the same source, the defense was proofread on Monday evening before the side’s legal group presented it to the court on Tuesday.

The party’s primary level in the written speech is that the group had no intention of destabilizing the political system with the King as head of state as charged, and that its steps, which the source claimed were insufficient, were insufficiently hostile to the constitutional king.

The MFP plans to hold a press event on Sunday to provide more information about what was submitted, according to Parit Wacharasindhu, MFP official and party-list MP. He added that the group would understand the legal foundation of its case-fighting.

When asked why the MFP chose Sunday to hold district-level elections for the Senate vote, he said it was the most convenient time.
