A tactic to avoid an election


From The Nation.

“Thai Democrat policy spokesman,Korn, said the policy proposal would be separate from that of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) although they can work in tandem.

Round-table discussions will be held across the country to get input from the public. The policy committee is composed of 15 members including politicians and people with academic backgrounds including former foreign minister Kasit Piromya and Pirayos Rahimmula.

The committee will come up with tangible plans to increase economic growth and to concretely measure it through indexes such as the GDP growth rate, level of public debt, level of debt per household and more. The timeframe for the committee’s work is between four and six months, Korn said.”

The Thai government would argue that the electorate should put in place a government that makes policy decisions. Discussions held around the country are fine but who appoints the policy makers. Certainly the electorate could notremove them through the ballot box.
