Former Ruling Party Members to Reapply if Party Dissolved

BANGKOK, May 26 - Acting Thai Rak Thai deputy leader Sudarat Keyuraphan said Saturday that members of the former ruling party would be asked after the May 30 ruling -- when the Constitution Tribunal issues its verdict on the fate of the party -- whether they will continue working with the party or leave.

Mrs. Sudarat, former agriculture and cooperatives minister in the government ousted by coup d’etat last September, said she was confident that her party was not guilty and believed in justice.

Members of the party and its members in the House of Representatives (Lower House) will not take action if the party is ordered dissolved by Constitution Tribunal, she said, especially after His Majesty the King spoke on his concerns over the current political climate in the country on Thursday.

She said questionaires would be distributed to former House of Representatives members of the party whether or not they would continue working with the party. If they wished to continue, she said, the former parliamentarians would have to re-enrol.

Mrs. Sudarat said she would not abandon the party founded by deposed prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

She urged both the Council for National Security and the military-installed government to work seriously for the country by inviting all parties concerned for discussions and finding ways for the people to accept the draft constitution which could pave the way to holding a general election as soon as possible.
