Minister to the Prime Minister’s Office Mr. Ongart Klampaiboon said the attempt by Pheu Thai MP Mr. Prakiat Nasimma who claimed the meeting between the Presidents of the Election Commission of Thailand and the Privy Council took place was to discredit the EC.
Mr. Ongart, in his capacity as the President of Bangkok Democrat MPs, said the claim was unfounded. He further added that the date which Mr. Prakiat purported that the meeting had taken place contradicted the day when the President of the Privy Council, Gen Prem Tinsulanond, and the EC President had actually met.
Mr. Ongart said it was inappropriate for Pheu Thai MP to involve Gen Prem during the election campaign when he was not even part of the politics. He urged Mr. Prakiat to explain himself regarding the matter.
