Pita ineligible for renomination, Parliament majority decides

(The Nation/ANN) -- After more than eight hours of debate, 395 of 715 parliamentarians voted that renominating Move Forward leader Pita Limjaroenrat as PM candidate violates Parliament regulation No 41.
The regulation forbids the resubmission of a motion that has already failed in a session.
The vote was called by Parliament President Wan Muhamad Noor Matha in line with regulation No 151, which allows a vote if there is a dispute over the interpretation of parliamentary rules.
The issue of whether Pita can be renominated was put up for debate after Move Forward members insisted it does not violate regulation No 41, while other parliamentarians insisted it did.
