Thailand's seven opposition parties are preparing to welcome and scrutinise former junta leader Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha's government.

 

Led by Pheu Thai and Future Forward parties, they convened on Wednesday for more than three hours and said later they would work inside and outside parliament to keep the government in check.

 

They said they would propose motions to debate the PM’s and MPs’ qualification and the recruitment of the Senate as well as government policies.

Other items included amendments of the Constitution, they added.

 

While scrutinising parliament was their major focus, the group also placed importance on campaigning for a better understanding of legislation by the public.

 

“The seven parties would bring hope to the people as a strong opposition that will scrutinise the government,” said Future Forward Party’s secretary-general Piyabutr Saengkanokkul. 

 

“Now, General Prayut Chan-o-cha will actually run the country with a real opposition. So, he can learn how to be a government under democratic rule.”

 

An opposition whip will be appointed to coordinate the work in addition to a working committee comprising of members from the seven parties.

 

Pheu Thai's secretary general said that the small parties will have one member each in the whip. Parties with over five MPs will get two seats while the large parties will get 10, he said.

They do know that means they promise to do that? On the other hand, there is nothing to scrutinise there. Everything is above board as usual.

Luckily, as Napoleon, oop's the newly appointed PM and party leader doesn't believe in, accept, or is able to accept any scrutiny from the trog's - so everything should work out well for him.

Great idea but futile as it doesn't matter what anyone thinks here other than the "Dear Leader" ... pfft.

Guessing the opposition will be scrutinized by investigations coming from the country's strict LM laws. 

 

Interesting how the entire Thai military follows one village idiot.

Gee Whiz they've suddenly found out what the role of an opposition is!

 

They were oblivious to it and any other scrutiny when in power themselves of course!

They can scrutinize all they want, if they don't have the Thai people behind them and motivated to take action their will be nothing they can accomplish even if they uncover discrepancies.
