A group of 52 senators on Tuesday submitted a petition to Anant Ariyachaipanich, the deputy senate speaker, seeking the disqualification of Senate Speaker Nikhom Wairatpanich from the upper house.
The group was led by senators Pornpan Boonyarattaphan and ACM Veeravit Khongsak.
Mrs Pornpan said Mr Nikhom, as the senate speaker, might have over-exercised his power in violation of the constitution and seriously breached moral principles by signing to propose two charter amendment bills - one to amend Sections 68 and 237 and the other to amend Section 190 of the constitution.
