NLA confident election will take place in due time

 

BANGKOK, 14 September 2017 (NNT) - The National Legislative Assembly is confident that all organic bills will be ready in time for the next general election and according to the national roadmap. 

NLA President Pornpetch Wichitcholchai said on Wednesday that all seven election commissioners will remain in office until their successors are elected and officially appointed.

Mr. Pornpetch said that a formal notification has been sent out to all involved to complete the selection process within 90 days. 

In regard to the two remaining organic laws pertaining to members of parliament and the Senate, Mr. Pornpetch said that the drafting process remains in progress and he believes they will be completed in time for the general election which is expected in late 2018.
