THE DEMOCRAT Party urged all sides to believe that the parliamentary system will be able to find a way out of the crisis for the county and is eager for constitution amendments to be raised during the extraordinary session on October 26-27, Thai Rath newspaper reported this afternoon (Oct. 24).
The party’s spokesman Rames Ratanachaweng said Parliament is where representatives of the people are performing their duties, with his party having collected the viewpoints of the constituents and will present the information in detail during the extraordinary session to together find a solution to the crisis.
In the government’s motion signed by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha the administration seeks MPs’ opinions on this crisis which is important information that it intends to use.
The President of the National Assembly Chuan Leekpai will allow all parties to express their full opinions under the meeting regulations, he added.
“In particular, the eight-hour time limit for the opposition is considered to be more than the number of hours for other parties. So the opposition should take this opportunity to reveal information to yield the maximum benefit.
“The meeting regulations clearly state not to discuss and unnecessary allude to His Majesty the King. Members should be careful on this matter.
“And we would like to bring up constitutional amendments for deliberation at this parliamentary meeting because it is something that needs to be done as soon as possible,” he said.
