Political parties told to go step by step in prelude to election

The National Council for Peace and Order has lifted restrictions on political activities but is apparently not in a hurry to allow full-fledged election campaigning.

 

Government spokesman Lt Gen Sansern Kaewkamnerd suggested this morning that NCPO will be taking gradual steps in increasing the political space leading up to the election, expected early next year.  Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-on-cha last week issued an executive order to permit a limited range of political activities to allow political parties to prepare for the election but stopped short of lifting the lid on election campaigning — not even on-line.

 

Several political veterans, while welcoming the easing of political activities, have come out to slam the junta for restricting their on-line activities.

Well, except for Prayut campaigning for himself:

  • [PM’s deputy, General Prawit Wongsuwan] told district chiefs to call meetings with village heads and kamnans every month to inform them about “what the government has done for the people”, particularly the poor."
  • "Local community leaders, particularly village heads and kamnans (chiefs of village clusters), often act as political canvassers and prove effective in influencing decisions by rural voters at the ballot box."

Too bad that is just a figure of speech .     Walking on eggshells on the way to a possible fiasco.  Have never heard the junta talk about freedom, just rules and the threats they like to make
