Everyone needs time to adjust, as EC girds up for forums, organic laws

Amid some anxiety about when the next general election will take place, Constitution Drafting Committee (CDC) member Thitipan Chuaboonchai has indicated the key to determining that would depend on the readiness of the Election Commission (EC) and political parties, which must be revamped under the charter's organic laws.

Mr Thitipan, who is also the chairman of the CDC's opinion-gathering subcommittee, has played a key role in organising forums in four regions of the country to collect the public's views on the 10 organic laws under the new charter. The CDC is responsible for writing such laws.
