Student activist Siriwit Seritiwat, known as “Ja New”, on Friday submitted a petition to National Legislative Assembly president Pornpetch Wichitcholchai asking for a no-confidence motion against the junta government.

Siriwit said the economy was suffering under the current administration and the country was further at risk because some members of the international community refuse to associate with a military autocracy.

He added that the government never “listened to the people” and often violated basic rights, and that speculation over government corruption was on the rise.

He called for the NLA to hold a no-confidence vote within one month. If it did not, he said, his group, the People’s Start Up, would take action outside parliament.

A representative of an NLA whip received the petition and agreed to forward it for consideration.

Meanwhile, key Pheu Thai figure Chaturon Chaisang attended his third plaintiff testimony at the military court on Friday.

He is charged with sedition and computer crime based on a speech he gave at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand in 2014.
