May is the new February

18 03 2018

Some well-connected members of the puppet National Legislative Assembly seem to be seeking another three months of “election” delay, effectively from February to May.

Six days after the NLA passed the organic bills on members of the Assembly and Senators, junta legal lackey and long-time anti-democrat “Meechai Ruchupan, the head constitution writer who helped draft them, suggested the NLA send the two bills to the Constitutional Court first to ensure they were completely sound.”

Military servant Meechai “expressed doubts about the reconciled bills, saying some parts were drastically different from the versions his team drafted, to the point they could be unconstitutional.”

As a result, the “NLA decided on Thursday to partially take … Meechai’s advice by sending only the senators bill to the Constitutional Court.”

We calculate the “delay” as meaning 5 years of military dictatorship.
