The Pheu Thai Party yesterday lodged a petition with the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) and the Constitution Drafting Committee (CDC) calling for a review of the controversial political party law.
In the petition, the party urged the NLA, the CDC and other concerned parties to set up a joint panel to revise the bill which has already been passed by the NLA.
Pheu Thai criticised at the version approved by the NLA which calls for a primary vote system, saying it is likely to cause problems when the law is enforced.
