Coalition parties to discuss policy proposals on Thursday


Representatives of coalition parties are set to meet on Thursday evening to discuss the proposals they have made to be incorporated in the new government’s policies, a key Phalang Pracharat Party leader said on Wednesday.

Nataphol Teepsuwan, a deputy leader of the coalition leader, said the meeting will be held at 7pm at the TOT complex. 
“The proposals from the different coalition parties will be adjusted so they are compatible with those of the core coalition parties. All parties, big or small, will be given the right to participate,” Nataphol said. 
The law requires that a new government announce its policies to Parliament before it starts working. 
On Wednesday, leaders from the 10 smaller coalition partners met Nataphol to submit their policy proposals, which include the construction of a water tunnel to help ease droughts in the Northeast, closer ties with Muslim countries and improving the quality of traditional medical practitioners. 
Lawmakers will be meeting in the auditorium in the TOT complex until the new Parliament building in Bangkok’s Kiakkai Road is completed early next year.
