Chicanery can only go on so long
The week ahead is going to be intense as political parties prepare to attend a meeting on Wednesday with those who seized power to negotiate the possibility of a total lifting of the ban on political activities.
These moves by the major parties come ahead of April 1 when the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) is set to partially lift the ban on such activities.
Under the Section 44 issued on Dec 22, 2017 by coup leader Prayut Chan-o-cha to amend the new organic laws on political parties, the timeframe for parties to comply with the organic law was extended beyond the original deadline of 180 days from Oct 8, 2017.
