The two newest members of the Pattaya City Council
officially took office Aug. 9, filling seats left vacant by resignations
before last month’s general election.
Zone 2 Councilman Nakhon Phonlookin and Zone 3 Councilman
Morakot Noohuang were sworn in by council president Tavich Chaiswangwong
Aug. 9 before the council’s first official meeting of the new session.
Nakhon takes over for his uncle, Adison Phonlookin, who
retired in May to run for parliament. Morakot, replaces another Phonlookin -
Wittaya - who also resigned this spring in hopes of becoming an MP.
“The two new councilmen were elected democratically by the population of
Pattaya and have stated their pledge to act under the Public Administration
Act of Pattaya 2009,” Tavich said.
