MPs to reinstate Samak if he disqualified

MPs from the ruling People Power Party said Thursday that they would vote to reinstate Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej if the Constitution Court rules to remove him from office for hosting TV cooking shows.

They said that they viewed Samak as the best qualified person from their party and that he deserved the post of government leader.

Some of the MPs pointed out that even if Samak would be disqualified by the court, there was no law to prevent him from assuming the prime ministerial post again.

The court yesterday began its hearing in a case against Samak, who is accused of violating the Constitution for hosting the two TV shows while holding the PM office.
