Opposition to seek charter court ruling


- +

The opposition Democrat Party will ask the Constitution Court to rule on the legality of the 2.2-trillion-baht borrowing bill as soon as it has passed its third and final reading in the House. 

Democrat MP Korn Chatikavanij said the charter court will be asked to intervene because the bill allegedly violates the charter's Section 8, involving fiscal and monetary disciplines.

The bill allows the government to borrow up to 2.2 trillion baht to finance key infrastructure development projects, mostly in the transport sector.
