The committee had already finished reviewing the bill and made changes to 17 clauses, said Taweesak Sukawatin, spokesman for the committee on Monday.
The committee and the Election Commission all agreed that the clause outlining the method of calculating MPs should be revised, he said.
The legislators would try to figure out how to apportion MP’s seats in the event that the calculation formula yields a result in fractions or decimals, and not a round number, Taweesak explained.
The organic bill on the MPs must also align with the Constitution as well as the recent junta order imposing the timeframe for political parties to work on membership registration, he said.
Review of the bill is expected to be completed later this month and added to the NLA agenda, Taweesak said.
