Full text of an item from The Nation (Bangkok):
Constitution Drafting Committee deputy chairman Wicha Mahakhun said Sunday that party-list MPs might not be necessary.
He said it was his own personal view that 500 MPs would be too unnecessary high and the reduction of number of MPs could be done through the abolition of party representative election system.
“I think party-list MPs are not necessary and without them, the number of MPs will be reduced,” Wicha said.
Thailand’s suspended parliament had 500 members, with 400 single-seat districts and 100 party-list MPs, the latter elected nationwide, and in parallel.
