The Nation: EC Commisioner Wants to go back to the Bench

EC commissioner Somchai wants to go back to work as judge

The Nation

Election Commission member Somchai Juengprasert said Tuesday that he preferred returning to work as a judge than staying as an EC member.

Somchai, who is in charge of investigation, said he was not under pressure but he did not attend some EC meetings because he was busy or sometimes sick.

He said he had no conflicts with other EC members but he did not feel like carrying out some jobs.

He said he had completed his job in holding the election and he believed the four other EC members could work without him.

He said he was awaiting a decision of the court as to whether he would be allowed to go back to work as a judge.

This smells fishy. I wonder if anybody will be willing to compare and contrast his assets from before and after the election.
