Initial findings have shown that seven members of the National Legislative Assembly have not missed the assembly meetings beyond the time limits set by the constitution, NLA president Pornpetch Wichitchaolachai said Thursday.
He said the information revealed by Mr Srisuwan Janya, secretary-general of Constitution Protection Association, showing seven assemblymen, including former defence permanent secretary and younger brother of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha, General Preecha, had been absent from assembly meetings beyond the legal limits.
Srisuwan demanded the NLA to disqualify the seven assemblymen.
Meanwhile, NLA vice president Pirasak Porchit said initial probe showed the seven assemblymen had not missed voting sessions of the NLA beyond legal limits and, therefore, are qualified to remain as assemblymen.
A full report of the case will be made known on Friday, he added.
