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.
