One of the two MPs, who were expelled earlier this month from the Move Forward Party for alleged sexual harassment, has found a new political home.

Chaiyamparwaan Manpianjit, a former Move Forward MP for Bangkok, has already notified the Election Commission that he will now be under the Thai Progress party banner.

This means that he can retain his membership of parliament, as the law states that an MP who is expelled from a party has 30 days to find a new one or lose their MP status.

Meanwhile, it is not yet known whether the other former Move Forward constituency MP for Prachin Buri province, Wuttiphong Thonglour, also expelled following a sexual harassment scandal, has found a new party.
