Local elections likely to come after general election




The elections of local administration organizations are likely to be held after the general election of MPs which has been tentatively scheduled for early next year with the earliest date being Feb 24, National Legislative Assembly (NLA) vice president Surachai Liangboonlertchai said today.


Mr Surachai said his assumption is based on the fact that the six draft local election bills had just been examined by the Council of State, the government’s legal arm. However, it is not known when the drafts will be forwarded to the NLA, he added.


Therefore, he believed this matter would be for the government and the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) to decide between them after consulting with the Election Commission which election should come first, he said.
