Opposition to consider fresh debate over next three months – Piyabutr

The Opposition will discuss, over the next three months before parliament resumes for a new session, another debate with a vote to be taken after the debate, against Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, said Future Forward secretary-general Piyabutr Saengkanokkul today (Thursday).

 

Assessing yesterday’s debate in the House, he said he was satisfied with the overall performance of opposition MPs, but was disappointed with the responses from the Prime Minister and cabinet members.

 

Piyabutr said he was afraid that the Prime Minister had set a bad precedent for future prime ministers regarding the oath recital and kept pressing for an answer from Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngarm about whether taking an oath of allegiance will be preserved as a tradition in the future.

"While insisting that the incomplete oath recital issue is not a big deal and it can be rectified, he accused the Prime Minister of dodging the issue."

 

 

He has had so much time, and many opportunities to rectify it, but it is so blatantly obvious that he has no intention of doing so, and will not back down !

Why don't you guys take an oath to maybe consider doing something someday if it's not too hard  and doesn't upset the government.

Explain in three words or less what you will do different than the last time which failed miserably!

As much as I like Piyabuttr and the Future Forward Party, can't they see by now - as most of us here can - that they are simply flogging a dead horse? 

The sad fact is that all the 'debates' and 'questions' in 'parliament' will have zero effect towards kicking out the junta. The Opposition are like little ants trying to overthrow an elephant (especially one that is firmly ensconced in the living room, if you get my drift ....!).

The junta are here to stay, protected and untouchable.

 

And we all know it.

They do have Parliamentary privilege which is a legal immunity enjoyed by members of certain legislatures, in which legislators are granted protection against civil or criminal liability for actions done or statements made in the course of their legislative duties.

"another debate with a vote to be taken after the debate, against Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha"

We have a heroin-trafficking academic fraud as minister, a PM who didn't adhere by law to uphold the constitutional oath, and a man who had 20+ million-baht watches which he said he borrowed from a friend who died. This is what is out there for anyone to see. We also have a lot more that isn't so obvious.

 

If these three criminal acts alone didn't take anyone down, nothing is. There wasn't any real rule of law in Thailand before, now they've just confirmed it. Best way to move forward is to just keep exposing them on social media. Hopefully they will be foolish enough to try and block Facebook, etc. Now that will get people out of their seats and onto the streets. 

 

Indeed. When you had a military Junta, with emergency powers and Article 44 at their disposal, who couldn't make taxi drivers use meters and stop refusing passengers; or motor cyclists stop using the pavements/sidewalks the justice system and enforcement is a tad lacking to say the least!

Point taken. If they can shred the constitution and gave the finger to the oath, who to trust. They have to go before any law and order can be restored.
