Thienchai outlines six components which are key to reform success 

National Legislative Assembly president Thienchai Keeranant today outlined six key components which he believes will contribute to the success of national reform.

The six key components are democratic rule which is appropriate for Thailand, just an honest election system, effective mechanism to deal with corruption problem, eradication of inequality and creation of social justice and sustainable development, public access to government services and just enforcement of the law.

Addressing a seminar for members of the NRC at the government complex in Chaengwattana, Mr Thienchai said that if all the reforms are geared toward realizing the six key components, there is a good chance that national reform will be successful.

He stressed the need for NRC members to cultivate better relationship among them which he said is important for the NRC to move forward because there is high degree of conflict of opinions among the members.

However, he said he was confident that he would be able to improve mutual relationship among members , to work out a common vision about reform and how the reform can be attained within the next few days.

The NRC president said there are different approaches for the reform process such as public participation in the process and holding of public hearings to allow members of the public to air their views.

He is also confident that the 18 committees responsible for each aspect of reform would encounter no obstacles.  He said that the NRC remains open to opinions of the political parties if they wish to do so.
