Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam said on Saturday that six local election bills would be submitted to the Cabinet for deliberation by next month.

 

Wissanu said the drafting of the six election bills was almost complete. They would be submitted to the Cabinet within next month for approval before being forwarded to the National Legislative Assembly the same month.

He said after the bills are enacted, it would be up to the Election Commission to decide the timing of elections to the local administration bodies nationwide by taking into account the schedule of the national election.

The National Council for Peace and Order suspended all local elections after it seized power in May 2014.
