Concerned parties would be invited to discuss issues concerning local elections and related laws on Thursday, Deputy PM Wissanu Krea-ngam reported to the Cabinet meeting on Tuesday.



Three main procedures were needed to pave the way for the elections, Wissanu said. They were: law reviews, the junta’s decision on degrees of elections, and the lifting of the ban on political activities.

Wissanu said locals elections were not necessarily linked to the national election, but if the junta decided to hold them, the ban on political activities would have to be lifted.
