"During the special session, the Senate will endorse a new member of the National Anti-Corruption Commission - and new judges of the Central Administrative Court, Deputy Senate Speaker Surachai Liangboonlertchai said."
Bangkok, April 28 - The Thai caretaker cabinet Monday approved a draft royal decree to convene an extraordinary session of parliament May 2-10, deputy government spokeswoman Sunisa Lertpakawat said.

The draft royal decree is awaiting the king's endorsement, Xinhua reported.

Since the Feb 2 general elections were nullified, resulting in the absence of members of the House of Representatives, the special parliamentary meeting will be attended only by senators.

The Election Commission - will endorse the last 15 senators Tuesday.

During the special session, the Senate will endorse a new member of the National Anti-Corruption Commission - and new judges of the Central Administrative Court, Deputy Senate Speaker Surachai Liangboonlertchai said.

The Senate is also expected to consider the impeachment of Speaker Nikom Vaiyaratpanich, who has been suspended since the NACC's ruling in March that he had violated the constitution for his role in chairing parliamentary meetings deliberating a constitutional amendment bill.
