Mr. Chaiwat, who was defeated in the December 23 general election in a constituency of Buri Ram, charged that the PPP was merely acting as nominee for the TRT party earlier led by former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra and that PPP leader Samak Sundaravej was acting as a proxy for the deposed premier.

The Democrat claimed such nominees had no legal rights to contest the general election and petitioned that the Supreme Court rule the victories of the PPP in both individual and proportionate votes as null and void.

Wirat Kalyasiri of the Democrat Party added that Mr. Samak had publicly declared he is a nominee for Mr. Thaksin and the deposed prime minister had also called on people to vote for the PPP which was once known as the TRT.

The Supreme Court ruling dealing with electoral cases scheduled January 15 will include the Democrat lawsuit.

Besides, the Supreme Court is scheduled on January 16 to judge whether or not the advance voting earlier set for December 15 and 16 nationwide should be declared null and void as petitioned by Thepphanom Siriwithayarak, head of the Esarn People’s Network for the Constitution, and Sarawuth Thongphen, a defeated candidate of the New Aspiration Party.
