    on my behalf /on behalf of me

    1. Thanks for explaining on behalf of me.

    2. Thanks for explaining on my behalf.

    Are the both sentences correct?

    Re: on my behalf /on behalf of me

    No. Only the second works.

    Re: on my behalf /on behalf of me

    However, you may hear people use the first in some regions, but it would generally be seen as non-standard. Use the second.
