He said on Monday that he had found that a few candidates of pro-junta Phalang Pracharat and Thaksin Shinawatra-backed Pheu Thai were in violation of the law prohibiting them from being shareholders in media businesses. “I won’t discriminate. I will lodge complaints [against those who breach the law] on Thursday, no matter whether they are with pro-democracy or pro-junta,” he added. Both the Constitution and the MPs Election Act prohibit MP candidates from holding shares in media companies. Srisuwan on Monday lodged a complaint with the EC over the alleged violation of the same law by 11 Future Forward Party MPs-to-be. He urged the electoral agency to suspend endorsement of the poll results for these candidates and to revoke their electoral rights, too. If found guilty, they face one to 10 years in jail and a fine of between Bt20,000 and Bt200,000. Their suffrage rights would also be revoked for 20 years. Srisuwan had earlier filed a complaint concerning Future Forward leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, alleging the same law violation.
