National Reform Steering Assembly delivers 1-month progress report


BANGKOK – The National Reform Steering Assembly (NRSA) has expressed satisfaction with its one-month progress.

NRSA Speaker Capt Thinapan Nakata, along with Deputy Speakers Alongkorn Ponlaboot and Valairat Sriaroon and the NRSA spokesperson team, delivered its one-month progress report and its plan of action for the future. 

According to the report, the NRSA’s 11 committees and special committee will, by December 10, submit suggestions to the main assembly on ways various reform agendas should be implemented.

The NRSA’s work is a continuation of the previous National Reform Council that identified 37 reform agendas and 8 fields of development. These agendas will be taken up by the NRSA, which will turn them into actionable legislation. During this process, the NRSA has met with heads of various ministries to ask for swift approval of various draft laws.

Ms Valairat added that the public has submitted over 2,000 suggestions on the new constitution to the NRSA. The NRSA will forward these suggestions to the Constitution Drafting Commission (CDC) and will continue to collect input.

NRSA Spokesperson Kamnoon Sidhisamarn revealed that members of the reform body will travel across the country along with the CDC and the National Legislative Assembly to gather input from the locals. Representatives from the three bodies will visit Chonburi province on December 8, Nakhon Ratchasima on December 9 and Chiang Mai on December 15.
