Junta, government to discuss revoking certain orders


The junta and the government are scheduled to meet on Tuesday to discuss the revocation of orders and announcements originally issued by the junta but which are no longer considered necessary, Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Kreau-ngam said on Monday.

Some of these were issued in 2014, Wissanu said.
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, who is also the junta chief, said the junta and the government had not officially met for long time and that with the Royal Coronation now over, it was a good time to hold this discussion, according to Wissanu.
They will consider the use of absolute power under Article 44 to abolish those announcements and orders, Wissanu said.
In fact, a junta meeting held on April 30 already took decisions on certain issues but Deputy Prime Minister Chatchai Salikalaya asked that a fisheries-related order be revoked with some conditions. This will be reconsidered on Tuesday.
