Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan said on Tuesday that he could not say when the National Council for Peace and Order would choose to deliberate the issue of lifting the ban on political gatherings, as the timing was “not yet right”.

However, he said, political parties could at present carry out certain activities as allowed by the law, apparently referring to those that do not require party meetings, such as the registration of party members.

Prawit urged politicians to wait for the right time in terms of the authorities lifting the ban, and said this would not be beyond what had been set under the government’s roadmap.

The deputy PM claimed that there were still some “disturbances” in the form of opposing political sides attacking each other.
