BANGKOK, 14 July 2011 (NNT) – The Pheu Thai Party has asked the Election Commission (EC) to certify MP status for all elected candidates urgently after the endorsement for many of its key members is pending.
Speaking about the pending approval of MP status for 11 elected party listed candidates of the party due to complaint investigations, Pheu Thai Spokesperson Prompong Nopparit said the EC should give justice to the targeted candidates as the complaints are suspected to contain political motives, rather than electoral frauds.
