Legal reform committee solicits agency suggestions


The legal reform committee on Wednesday held a public hearing with the Council of the State and the Cabinet Secretariat involving the enactment of new laws.

The committee was soliciting their views on legals reforms as required by the new reform law, said committee chair Borwornsak Uwanno.
The agencies proposed a national legislative plan to ensure the systematic enactment of laws and to set timetables.
Borwornsak said the committee had established a principle to reform the legal sector, which was meant to review existing legislation and enact only necessary revisions.
The committee also proposed a ministerial panel to review existing laws.
In addition, the committee was working on a response to Article 77, which addresses public participation in the enactment of new laws.
Borwornsak said the committee would meet 20 other concerned agencies on Thursday to hear their views. It will then hold public hearings across the country starting on November 15.
