UDD wants tribunal judges to step down

Representatives of the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) have traveled to the office of the Constitution Court to demand a resignation of the constitution tribunal judges, following the court’s order to put off the charter revision.

The UDD representatives, including Weng Tojirakarn and Suporn Attawong, submitted letters to all seven tribunal judges on Friday at the court’s office. The letters said the judges exercised their power unconstitutionally and should take responsible for their action by resigning and revoking their order to halt the constitution amendment bill.

The UDD representatives said the group was gathering 30,000 names to launch an impeachment against the seven tribunal judges and preparing to file lawsuits against them. The representatives assured that the UDD’s movements on this matter would be in line with the legal process.

Meanwhile, the UDD’s opponent, a group of supporters from the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) gathered in front of the court on the same day to give moral support to the judges, saying that the judges had stopped the charter revision for the country.
