MPs too busy to attend national reform debate, says Prawit

Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan explained that government MPs were busy in a meeting on Wednesday (July 8 ) and failed to hear the summoning bell for a Lower House debate, causing it to be cancelled as it lacked a quorum.

 

Prawit then told a reporter that no further action was needed to remedy the no-show.

 

The House had been due to discuss the progress of national reform, in a scheduled debate between the government and opposition based on reports every three months.

 

However, only 231 MPs showed up, while House rules say at least 244 of the 487 MPs must be present before a debate can go ahead. 

 

The meeting was eventually cancelled by House Speaker Chuan Leekpai, 20 minutes after the summoning bell rang.

More than 250 MPs and no one heard the bell. Next time you should find a better excuse.

Is that up to you? 
 

Great first few days, Prawit. You’ve brought the PPRP down a whole other level. Who’d have thunk that was even possible?

If you truly believed and had faith in something, wouldnt you welcome a debate about it instead of running from it?

That would have been a wasted 5 minutes.

Pavlovian reaction, they hear a bell and think they are going to get something to eat, when no food arrives they go back to sleep.
