Court may be asked to rule on Abhisit

- +

Pheu Thai members will be asked to approve a petition for the Constitution Court to examine and rule on whether former prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva is qualified to be an MP after he was stripped of his military rank and dismissed from military service retroactively for draft-dodging, Pheu Thai spokesman Prompong Nopparit said on Sunday. 

Mr Prompong said a proposal would be made at a meeting of the Pheu Thai Party tomorrow for MPs to sign in support of the petition.

Apart from the petition to the Constitution Court, Pheu Thai will ask the Election Commission to review whether Mr Abhisit was qualified to be the opposition leader and to be nominated for the post of prime minister in the no-confidence motion filed against the government Saturday.
