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.
