- +

Former deputy prime minister and acting Pheu Thai Party deputy leader Plodpradop Surasawadi has dismissed as "nonsensical" allegations by Election Commission (EC) investigators that former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra and seven former cabinet ministers, including himself, and former police chief Adul Saengsingkaew violated the 2007 constitution, 

The EC investigators allege that the nine abused their authority in making electioneering trips around the country prior to the Feb 2 election, which was later nullified, after the house of representatives was dissolved on Dec 9, Matichon Online reported.

It is alleged Ms Yingluck, the seven former cabinet ministers and Pol Gen Adul had used the state's resources and personnel in their trips, ordering government officials to arrange for local people to come out to greet them and raise banners with messages showing support for them.
