Democrats set for B2tr loan legal challenge

Korn warns of future misdeeds if bill passes

- +

The Democrat Party will ask the Constitution Court to consider the legality of the government's 2-trillion-baht borrowing bill to fund transport development after the Senate passes it. 

In an exclusive interview with the Bangkok Post yesterday, Deputy Democrat leader Korn Chatikavanij said his party strongly believed the bill violated the constitution and would lead to corruption.
