Election-related bills 'still at risk of being axed'

The possibility of the two bills on the election of MPs and selection of senators being scrapped or sent for a Constitutional Court review, which would yet again push back an election, cannot be ruled out, political sources say.

The possibility was raised by Democrat Party deputy leader Nipit Intarasombat after the National Legislative Assembly (NLA), the Constitution Drafting Committee (CDC) and the Election Commission (EC) decided to sit down via a single panel and thrash out their differences over the bills after they were passed by the NLA.

The bills are crucial pieces of legislation needed to prepare the ground for the next election, the deadline of which has already been extended from November to February next year.

They may as well discontinue this farce and admit there won't be any elections for the foreseeable future. Even if there is an election, as long as the Army holds the majority of seats, it won't matter who the PM is or what he wants to do. By the time the Junta finishes rewriting the constitution it will be bullet proof and unchangeable. Whatever statutes are in place at the finish will be there for a long time and the land of everything backwards will continue it's slide into the past.
