Thai parliament prepares for censure debates

Thailand’s opposition will begin, on Monday, censure debates aimed at toppling Thailand’s coalition government with a no-confidence vote due by February 28.

The coalition government, led by the Palang Pracharath Party, will be questioned over various issues including its poor handling of Thailand’s struggling economy, its mixed response to an ongoing coronavirus outbreak and pollution problems plaguing the country.

Among those to be questioned will be Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha, Deputy Prime Ministers Prawit Wonguswan, Anutin Charnvirakul and Somkid Jatusripitak.

With the Future Forward Party disbanded by the Constitutional Court last Friday, look for the remnant MPs from FWP to question the government on its political involvement in the decision.

The remaining FWP delegation will be led by Pita Limjaroenrat who said on Friday that he would continue to do the work started by the Future Forward Party.
