Wirat Rattanaset, government chief whip and head of the committee reviewing constitutional amendments, has reportedly invited Jon Ungphakorn and Udom Rathamarit, the committee’s former head.
Jon said before the meeting that iLaw had insisted the members of the CDA had to be elected, not appointed.
“When we proposed it, some MPs said that we did not open opportunities for people at the provincial level which is not true. On the contrary, the election would give people an opportunity to elect people who reflect their needs,” he said.
Meanwhile, Palang Pracharat Party MP Paiboon Nititawan and a senator, Somchai Sawangkarn, have requested Parliament to ask the Constitutional Court to interpret Parliament’s authority in the amendment and that motion has been postponed without a due date.
