The Constitution Drafting Committee will not rush in finishing the drafting of the charter-mandated organic laws, but will finish them within 8-month timeframe as constitutionally specified.
CDC spokesman Udom Rath-amarith said Thursday that the CDC would not rush to finish the draft of MP election bill quickly because it must wait for political parties to adjust themselves in six months’ time with new election rules as specified in the political party bill.
Also, he said the CDC would have to wait for the Election Commission to make adjustments in compliance with the new law.
Mr Udom insisted that all the organic laws must be completed within eight months as mandated by the charter in time for the holding of a general election within this year.
The CDC is due to consider the bill regarding the National Human Rights Commission on Monday and, in so doing, the CDC will stage a public hearing to allow all stake holders to share their view on this issue.
