Disgraceful MP - translated and summarized from Matichon, April 5, 2008
Concerning the verbal spat and physical confrontation - in Parliament on April 2 - that occurred between the People Power Party MP for Bangkok’s Don Muang constituency, Karun Hosakun, and the Democrat Party’s party-list MP Somkiat Pongpaiboon. A special parliamentary committee has been set up to investigate the case. I believe this issue reflects negatively on the image of Parliament. If Parliament is to continue to be a respected and prestigious institution, it is essential that the public perceives its MPs as upright and ethical. I would add that if this case is not investigated in a transparent manner, the image of Parliament will be further eroded.
