June 24 group challenges Jaruvan's suitability to be a senator

- +

The June 24 Democracy group has submitted a letter to the Election Commission (EC) challenging the election of Khunying Jaruvan Maintaka as senator for Bangkok. 

It wants the EC to suspend the endorsement of the former auditor-general.

Led by Songchai Vimolbhattranond, the June 24 group claimed Khunying Jaruvan had won because appointed senator Paiboon Nititawan had spoken on the People's Democratic Reform Committee protest stage in a manner that had put other senate candidates in Bangkok at a disadvantage.
