The four incumbent and former ministers facing disqualification are: (clockwise) former Prime Minister's Office minister ML Panadda Diskul, Science and Technology Minister Suvit Maesincee, Education Minister Dr Teerakiat Jareonsettasin and Deputy Transport Minister Pailin Chuchottaworn. By law, the EC must look into the case and decide whether to send it to the Constitutional Court for a ruling. EC president Ittiporn Boonpracong said on Friday the EC had voted to send the case to the court. Mr Pailin, a former CEO of PTT Plc, also had 5,000 shares in energy giant PTT Plc and more in its subsidiaries — GPSC (50,000 shares), IRPC Plc (240,000), PTT Global Chemical Plc (60,000) and Thai Oil (40,000). The EC also voted to send his case to the court, which cleared him in late October.
