The endorsement took immediate effect.

Both positions were left vacant on the death of Chumpol Silpa-archa in January. The slots are under the quota of the Chartthaipattana Party.

Mr Somsak is a former governor of Suphan Buri, the home province of de facto leader Banharn Silpa-archa, who is serving a political ban.
