Charter drafting committee’s meeting to be held in Chonburi this week


BANGKOK, 23 February 2015 – The Charter Drafting Committee has relocated its meeting to Chonburi province this week, citing the need to complete the first revision promptly.

The meeting is being held at the Holiday Inn, Pattaya City. The committee is expected to review several sections governing the Parliament, the cabinet and the mixed proportional electoral system.

The committee has so far completed the revision of more than 150 sections and will not go beyond section 299. No media observation is allowed at the meeting.

The CDC claimed the change of venue would help them pull concentration and finish the first draft sooner. The meeting will be held from 9.00 – 21.00 hrs every day until February 28th.
