NCPO likely to discuss lifting of ban on political party activities: Wissanu

The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) on Tuesday will likely discuss the lifting of its long-imposed ban on political party activities in light of the upcoming general election, Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam said on Monday.
 

Wissanu said he had submitted legal suggestions to the NCPO a day before the junta members were set to meet and discuss matters.

 

The suggestions include permissions for parties to hold meetings with a view to receiving more members, to comment on the setting of constituencies, to conduct primary voting, to set up committees in order to seek MP candidates, and to cooperate with their members, he said.

 

The deputy PM also brushed aside that the NCPO’s tentative deliberation would have anything to do with the speculated resignations of two ministers in the current Cabinet, who are rumoured to hold top posts in a party supporting the prime minister, General Prayut Chan-o-cha.

 

There has also been speculation around the NCPO’s possible enforcement of its absolute Article 44 power to clear political hurdles, mostly set by the junta-appointed legislators themselves, and enable political parties to prepare themselves under the new, complex election mechanism under the 2017 Constitution.

 

Most of the concerns are in regard to the newly introduced primary voting system that will be required for all parties to select their MP candidates. 

 

All parties, regardless of their size, must have sufficient numbers of members and representatives in contesting constituencies under the new system.

 

The NCPO, citing the need for order and security, long ago also imposed bans against political party activities and political assemblies of five or more people unless permitted by the junta.

 

Such bans have frozen parties from holding any mass official meetings since the junta came to power back in 2014.

Likely to discuss??? Seems to me that they do not realize the concept of a democratic election.

Does he even know how much difference there is between discuss lifting and will lift? 

Is anyone going to be surprised if they announce no elections in February. 

Perhaps in May.........be

'Likely to discuss ban' is another example of the dictatorial mindset of the Junta. The military have no clue what a democracy is which is not surprising as no military in the world operates under democratic principles.

Yet, this show remains uniquely Thai. 

The nature has followed for some for some time now. 

 

The very puzzling hybrid of plutocratic democracy may seem to be logically contradictory, but seems to meld in a working fashion. 

Almost siwilai in a fashion.

Wissanu is a treacherous person; one only has to look at him.

He is the most likely person in the NCPO to lie through his teeth apart from two others, one of whom can't be mentioned and the other who is a complete idiot who wouldn't know whether he was lying or not.
