Deputy Senate speaker said nine-day extraordinary session too short

Deputy Senate Speaker Surachai Liangboonlertchai Monday expressed concern that the upcoming extraordinary session of parliament would be too short for the Senate to work efficiently.

The Cabinet Monday approved a draft royal decree to convene a special session of parliament from Friday to May 10.

Surachai said the Senate would have to carry out two urgent tasks - to endorse a new member of the National Anti-Corruption Commission and endorse new central administrative court judges.

In the case of deliberation of NACC nominee Supha Piyachit, Surachai said, the Senate would have to set up a committee to scrutinise her qualifications and the process would take time.
