Declare assets now or face future disaster

Re: "Overwhelming majority of Thais want NCPO, NLA members to declare assets: Survey", Breaking News, August 17.

The poll results should serve to warn the coup leaders that their mission to make Thailand a democratic haven is not a piece of cake.

All appointed members of the National Council for Peace and Order, National Legislative Assembly, National Reform Council, Constitution Drafting Committee and NCPO-installed government should declare their assets before taking office, in the same way democratically elected officeholders did prior to the May 22 coup.

There will be insurmountable stumbling blocks ahead if they fail to do so.
