Candidates nominated in more than one area for Thai reform council

Many candidates for the National Reform Council have been nominated in more than one area of reform, which is against the nomination rules, the spokesman for one of the 11 selection committees said yesterday.

Surapon Nitikraipot, spokesman for the selection committee on political affairs, said up to 20 candidates nominated for political reform were also nominated for local administrative affairs. A candidate can only apply for one sector.

The panel also laid out the selection criteria, which they would deliberate on based on the candidate's profiles, including qualifications, profession, political party affiliation, political profile and political ideology.

Meanwhile, NLA president Pornpetch Wichitcholchai said the selection committee for judiciary and justice system reform would compile a 50-name shortlist before further examining the candidates.

"We should have people from different political stance, such as red shirt or yellow shirt," he said.
