The Election Commission (EC) will submit the case of the cooking television show hosted by the Prime Minister and Defense Minister, Mr. Samak Sundaravej, to the Constitutional Court next week.

Election Commissioner Praphan Naikowit says the EC has not yet handed the case to the court as it is now gathering documents and facts of the case. As for progress of the election fraud case of the the Democrat Party deputy leader, Mr. Withoon Nambutr (วิฑูรย์ นามบุตร), Mr. Praphan says the EC does not delay the case, as it is waiting for investigation results of the subcommittee overseeing for the case.

The EC member says the investigation of Mr Withoon’s case is expected to be completed early August. He says further that the EC is expediting the investigation of complaints against the EC’s decisions in election-related cases.
