Thailand – Previous Palang Pracharath Party (PPRP) MP Sira Jenjaka is suing Move Forward Party (MFP) pioneer Pita Limjaroenrat and MFP by-political decision competitor, Karunpol Thiansuwan, over a mission picture including his picture.
In view of this, Mr Sira, who addressed Bangkok’s Constituency 9 until he was deprived of his MP status by the Constitutional Court last year, said he has selected a legal counselor to make a legitimate move against both Mr Pita and Mr Karunpol.
Along with this, The MFP will handle Mr Karunpol as its competitor in the Sunday by-political decision in Constituency 9, which envelops Lak Si locale and portions of neighboring Chatuchak area.
Mr Sira, whose spouse Saralrasmi is a PPRP competitor in the impending by-political decision, said the MFP had doctored his picture with an obvious plan to deride him.
The MFP, he said, posted the image close by Mr Karunpol’s during its political race. The mission banner came connected with a message calling for volunteers to assist with getting survey swindles.
Mr Sira said he will request a consolidated 50 million baht in harms from Mr Pita and Mr Karunpol, vowing to battle to shield his standing.
He said the MFP’s activity is an infringement of the Election of MP Act, and that he will document a grievance with the Election Commission.
In the interim, Sorawong Thienthong, Pheu Thai’s chief for the Constituency 9 by-political race, said the party will dispatch spectators to watch over the 280 surveying stations across the body electorate.
