The meeting on Tuesday between Election Commission (EC) and political parties will be broadcast live, the government's Centre of Administration for Peace and Order (CAPO) announced on Monday.
Modernine and the state-run NBT stations are being assigned to broadcast the event, in which 42 political parties are expected to participate.
Supachai Somcharoen, the EC chairman, has said that the Tuesday meeting will be a chance for discussions on revising certain rules that proved to be an obstacle during the previous election. The EC will ask the opinion of each party on the appropriate day to hold the election.
The ongoing political disputes resulted in the annulment of the February 2 snap election. The EC has initiated Tuesday’s meeting in a bid to find way out of the political crisis.
