Pheu Thai MPs to convene on Monday

Posted by Rattana_S On November - 24 - 2013
(The Nations) Pheu Thai Party spokesman Prompong Nopparit said all MPs will meet on Monday, getting ready for the no-confidence debate which is scheduled for November 26-27.

All MPs are told to closely monitor the political situation until the end of this month, he said.

Though three anti-government groups join force to topple the government, he said the government would not call for House dissolution.

Prompong said that former Democrat MP Suthep Thaugsuban is likely to lead supporters to the Parliament building and the Government House, to block the no-confidence vote. On another front, the Democrat Party could rush the National Anti-Corruption Commission to impeach 312 MPs and to call for the reopening of the House when only Democrat and Bhum Jai Thai MPs remain. They would then vote against Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and vote to appoint Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva as the prime minister.

“Is this actually the plan?” Prompong asked, directing the question to Suthep and Abhisit.

He noted that 15 million voters who support Pheu Thai Party would not stay idle if this is true.

On Monday, he would go to NACC to urge for fair investigation into the 312 MPs, who endorsed the charter amendment on senator selection.

The investigation followed the Constitutional Court’s ruling that the amendment was unconstitutional. Pheu Thai still questioned the court’s authority in reviewing the case.

Anti-government groups have stepped up their movement, with plans to cripple Bangkok on Monday. While more supporters are coming from provinces, including some 2,000 from Chon Buri and more from Nakhon Ratchasima, the pro-government groups have also mobilised supports. Over 10,000 are expected from eight provinces in the North – a major stronghold of Pheu Thai Party.
