The National Legislative Assembly has asked the government to send the last bill for it to deliberate no later than the end of this year, Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam said on Saturday.

The NLA reasoned that if the government submits bills later, the chamber would have no time to deliberate them, Wissanu said.

The government has announced a tentative election date, saying it would be held on February 24 if everything proceeds in accordance with the election road map.

Although the new charter allows the next government to reaffirm pending bills for deliberation by the House, the NLA fears that there would be too many remaining if more bills are submitted to the chamber after December.
