Opposition targets impeachment of Nikom

- +

The opposition will seek the impeachment of Senate Speaker Nikom Wairatpanich for denying Democrat MPs the chance to debate during Wednesday's parliamentary session. 

Mr Nikom abruptly closed the session after only seven of the 57 Democrat MPs listed to speak had debated Section 5 of the charter amendment bill. The section would remove the current ban on family members of MPs and holders of political positions from running for the Senate.

Opposition chief whip Jurin Laksanavisit said the impeachment move was agreed upon at a party meeting yesterday.
