PM to extend deadline for parties to update membership lists


The junta chief will exercise his absolute power under Article 44 to extend the deadline for political parties to proceed with their administrative work, including updating their party member lists, despite the fact that the ban on political activities remains.

The decision was made at the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) meeting chaired by its chief, Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha, on Tuesday.
The Act came into effect in early October and it set a deadline for political parties to update their lists of party members to the Election Commission within 90 days after promulgation – or January 5 next year.
But the parties have not been able to follow the law because of the junta’s order to ban any political activities has remained in force since 2014.
