An activist group plans to petition the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) on Tuesday for an investigation into whether election commissioners violated the Constitution and other laws.

Srisuwan Janya, secretary general of the Association of Organisations for the Protection of the Thai Constitution, said on Monday the group would submit the petition at NACC headquarters in Nonthaburi at 10am on Tuesday.

The petition alleges offences committed by all seven members of the Election Commission.

Srisuwan said the group will submit evidence and the names of voters and “witnesses” to the alleged offences.

He said the group wants the NACC to refer the matter to public prosecutors, whom he believes will bring it before the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Political Office Holders.

“If the court agrees to accept the case, the seven commission members have to cease their work until a verdict is rendered,” he said.
