It appears that there are 100 members signing, which is not less than 1 in 5 of the total number of members. Therefore, in order to perform duties and in accordance with the constitution prescribed Therefore, the consideration of this Emergency Decree shall be deferred until the Constitutional Court’s ruling has been notified. Therefore, I would like to end the consideration of this agenda only.
Wisarn Techathierawat, Pheu Thai Party MP, said last week there were documents for him to sign. Therefore, if there is a name related to the submission to the Constitutional Court in this matter, he would like to not be recognized. and to assume that is not their signature
while Jirayu Huangsap, Pheu Thai Party MP, rose up and asked to discuss the content he had prepared. He did not say anything about the legislative system. But if he doesn’t speak, the country will collapse and be damaged. In particular, the National Police Commissioner (Police Commander) asked the Police Commissioner to follow up with Pol.Lt.Gen. over 4,000 million baht nationwide
After that, Dr. Chonnan Srikaew, leader of the opposition in the House of Representatives, said he regretted that the law had not been considered. unable to vote which is likely to disapprove of this law Because most of the members of the council objected and disagreed. therefore remarked that the constitutional court filing of the ruling party The government expects that this Royal Decree will be overturned by the House of Representatives and therefore uses the process of submitting it to the Constitutional Court to prolong time. Which will be the history of the Thai nation brewed by the cabinet, consumed by the cabinet and carried away by the cabinet itself, is a shameful thing. Something that shouldn’t happen because those who file the case with the Constitutional Court should have a disapproval vote. Therefore, this filing cannot be translated into anything other than using the mechanism of the Constitutional Court to delay time. Because it takes at least 60 days for the Constitutional Court to make a decision, which makes the Decree enforceable until a decision by the Constitutional Court or may be passed on to the next government. At the same time, he also noted that there may be problems in the procurement process in time, according to Chirayu Huangsap, MP of the Pheu Thai Party, who has revealed that it is not that the equipment was found in time as claimed.

while Chinawan Bunyakiat, MP for Nakhon Si Thammarat Province Democrat Discuss what the Leader of the Opposition has said would be history involving fellow members of the House of Commons. In particular, there were references to members of the ruling coalition participating in the disappearance process. which he thought that if he did not listen to the other party’s reasons, it would not be a principle that could be called checks and balances and not in accordance with the principle known as having to respect the rights of each party Their side also adhered to the rule of law that when it was signed because it was not in accordance with the conditions of the decree under Section 172 of the Constitution. They had their doubts, and in this council it was said that this decree was not inconsistent with section 172, but their submission was reasonable. It is believed that the issue of the Royal Decree related to Articles 22, 23, 24, 25 is not only a matter under the Disappearance Act, but also has international obligations that Thailand has to undertake.
Shinawaon said that being an MP, he also had a conscience in the rule of law. human rights principles and principles to protect the rights and liberties of the people Therefore, he would like the Leaders of the Opposition to respect the rights of their side who have acted in signing a petition to proceed in accordance with the Constitution for 3 important reasons:
- The submission to the Constitutional Court for interpretation is in accordance with Article 173 of the Constitution and is beyond doubt.
- It is to shorten the time to protect the rights and liberties of the people. If it is allowed to pass, it will have to postpone this Act for another 6 months, but if it is submitted to the Constitutional Court, it only takes 2 months for the ruling to come out and
- This is the first time MPs from the ruling coalition have jointly submitted a bill proposed by the executive branch.
After that, Chuan thanked MPs and officials from the Secretariat of the House of Representatives. who have worked hard for the past 4 years, he hoped that although he did not have the opportunity to return to everyone, he asked that most MPs return to perform their duties Politics is uncertain Today’s opposition may be the government. The people in the government today may be the opposition of tomorrow. The important thing is to say anything bad that day must not be bad. what’s good today that day must be good wishing you success
