Petition challenges 'caretaker' status

Activist asks ombudsman to seek ruling from charter court

- +

A political activist has asked the Office of the Ombudsman to seek a Constitution Court ruling on whether the government under Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has forfeited it caretaker status. 

The petition was filed on Monday by activist Taikorn Polsuwan.

In the petition, Mr Taikorn questioned whether the Yingluck cabinet can still be the caretaker government under Sections 244 and 245 of the constitution. It said there is now a political vacuum because the Election Commission had not been able to endorse the result of the Feb 2 election and the first parliamentary session could not be held within 30 days of the polls  as required by the constitution.
