Legislator Wallop Tangkananurak on Monday expressed concern that the controversial organic bill governing election of members of parliament could draw out the road map to a 2018 election if rejected by politicians.

If the bill was sent to the Constitutional Court for interpretation, the election planned for November next year could be delayed for another one or two months to February 2019, he said.

The MPs bill is one of the two remaining of 10 organic bills to be submitted to the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) for deliberation. The other is the Senate bill, which Wallop said would probably not pose any problem.

The legislator insisted the NLA would not reject the bills in order to hold up the election.
