Meechai: Roadmap time-frame will not be extended

BANGKOK, 19th June 2017 (NNT) - The Constitution Drafting Commission (CDC) has again asserted that the time frame of the reform roadmap will not be prolonged even if the draft organic Election Commission Act fails to win a majority vote in the assembly. 

CDC chairman Meechai Ruchuphan said yesterday that under no circumstances would the roadmap time-frame be extended, not even if the draft law pertaining to the electoral body is rejected by the National Legislative Assembly (NLA). 

A joint committee comprised of eleven members is being formed, according to the chairman, to vet the bill. Of the eleven members, five will be selected from the Legislative Assembly, another five from the charter drafting team, and one from the EC. 

After the vetting process, the bill will be resubmitted to the main assembly for a final review. A two-thirds vote is needed to pass the bill into law. However, if the lawmakers decide to reject the bill, Meechai said the CDC still has enough time to re-draft the bill, while ensuring that the entire process is completed within the a 240-day period.

I'd love to have a look at this road map. I think it must resemble one of those find the way through the maze games they have for kids. All you need is a crayon. 


Even kids can finish those though. I think the road map looks more like one of those old pirate maps with no clarity at all: "There be redshirts here" "Fields of Facebook" and of course "X" which marks the spot...perhaps of elections or perhaps the hiding place of the missing plaque. ;)

Of course if "X" marks the spot of elections it doesn't mean much because once there you'd have to dig down and still find the bloody things >_>

The "roadmap" is on a blackboard....in chalk...overseen by kindergarten mentality.

Poor old Meechai....he'll retire again one day knowing he's left a legacy of complete confusion and degredation of living standards of the working class Thai people.....and all for the army!

They keep mentioning 20 years so gives some idea how big this road map is ! I drove from Sydney to North Queensland 50 years ago the road map then was confusing enough so many non existent things, dangers and U turns just sounds familiar !!!!!

Since when has any "bill" brought to the floor failed to clear the NLA by a vote of 200:0?

 

Each NLA member makes 113,500 THB per month (base salary), an they can employ five family members staff at significant salaries, and they don't even have to show up for "work", and the Junta leader can replace them on a moments notice, so can't see a bill getting voted down.

then cant have an election; redraft by the same original authors would likely end up being the same and subsequently shot down; cycle
