BANGKOK: -- The Election Commission is ready to leave the job if the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) votes on June 9 to approve a new law that will see all the existing five commissioners to step down to pave the way for the selection and appoint of the new 5-member commission.

 

The new law was proposed by the National Reform Steering Assembly. It proposed to reset the entire EC members.

 

EC president Supachai Somcharoen said he was ready to comply with the law if the NLA passes the third hearing of the new legislation on June 9.

 

But he said the EC could veto the law passed by the NLA in 10 days if the bill is against the intent of the 2017 Constitution.

 

Upon the veto, the NLA must appoint 11-member extraordinary committee to reconsider the bill.

 

The extraordinary committee comprises five NLA members, five Constitution Drafting Commission members, and one member from independent organisation.

Thats got to be worth at least six months, probably more tp appoint a new commision, six months to "read themselves in", and then, a year to prepare?
Mid to end 2019 then?

... but how can you determine the "intent of a constitution" when there is a hole in it?
