I believe it will be of little or no benefit. There are 3 things that he goes out to invite investors to focus on: benefits. power neutrality and clean energy Therefore, we must be ready. Because there is still competition, especially with other countries. But I believe that Thailand is ahead in many matters. Whole life Low cost of living and legal The Prime Minister said that from discussions with the Prime Minister of the Lao PDR that has clean energy. and many dams Therefore want to sell electricity and these energies Thailand is a country that needs clean electricity. Including Singapore that has a good ecosystem There are good laws. There are strong startups. and there is a desire to sell clean energy through Thai transmission lines. This matter cannot be given. But it will not let Laos lose any benefit. The Prime Minister also said that France is an interesting country in the use of clean energy. Energy consumption is as high as 90 percent of the total energy. So let's go see where the clean energy comes from.

It is a new type of debt instrument in the green debt instrument group. To be a source of funds for world social development I admit that we still don't do well in terms of funding. Still have to rely on the capital market Therefore, we talked with the stock exchange about supporting listing on the stock exchange. Give importance to companies involved in green business for registration. Because the capital market plays an important role in developing a green global society.

Even though they are currently being used, there aren't enough of them. We are lucky to have many dams. that can use clean energy Even though the nuclear issue hasn't happened yet. But there are enough resources to create a large amount of clean energy. and believe that large companies understand the importance But the biggest concern is the supply chain. If big companies cannot be brought in to share the same philosophy, there will be export problems. Or if Thailand does not have environmentally friendly energy. He also didn't want to come to work. Otherwise, you will face attraction problems. Therefore leave the entrepreneurs Give importance to this matter as well. and hope that other organizations will continue to do so Which would be a very good thing. Source: Thai News Agency

And when regulations like this have been issued As a result, there are 2 groups of applicants who think that the current regulations of the Election Commission violate the constitution. and limiting the rights and freedoms of applicants Therefore, a petition was filed with the Administrative Court that To help diagnose the Election Commission's regulations. The Administrative Court then issued an order requesting the Election Commission to revoke Regulations 7, 8, 11 (2), 11 (3) and have them retroactive to the date of their promulgation. But if you look at the timeline The Election Commission still has 30 days of appeal power, which expires on June 23. This regulation will have the power to enforce the selection of district and provincial senators on June 9, and 16 June, there are only 3 days left before reaching the national level on 26 June.

Make district level selection and provincial level Applicants will not be able to publish yet. and promote yourself to the public Or talk about what you want to do as a senator, including various ideas and ideologies. The Election Commission provides clarity on the Administrative Court's order as follows: 1. We request that The Election Commission issues new regulations immediately. and the new regulations must be consistent with the administrative court orders. 2.Please call for The Election Commission announced its intention that There will be no appeal against this administrative court's order.

“Somchai” reveals information about applicants Senator – Hua Selection

Parliament "Senator Somchai" warns the Election Commission that he risks going to jail if he doesn't check the selection of senators. Reveals that he has information about bringing in applicants, selecting and hiring people to apply. It is recommended to extend the timeline for announcing results by 1-2 months, hoping to ensure transparency. Mr. Somchai Sawangkarn, member of the Senate (Senator), spoke about the process of selecting among the Senators. Recently, the number of applicants for selection in each group was less than the Election Commission (EC)'s target of 100,000 people. The selection of senators according to the spirit of the constitution is to have representatives from 20 professional groups. But now it is found that there are some political groups that are campaigning for people to apply to be elected (voters) instead of wanting to be senators, which is clearly against the spirit of the constitution. Meanwhile, the regulations of Election Commission in selecting There were still problems and the Election Commission prepared to appeal to the Administrative Court. which he considers such cases to be dangerous and will cause selection problems. Mr. Somchai also said that he saw that the Election Commission secretary tried to say in an interview that the selection would follow the timeline. It is considered that if the Election Commission tries to announce approval first This can be dishonest and dangerous. Because he got the information both from election inspectors and people in the area We know that there is a corruption process and a selection scam. And it was found that people were hired to apply for 2,000 - 10,000 baht per person, for example in some areas they hired 5,000 baht, an application fee of 2,500 baht, 2,000 baht for themselves and 500 baht for their children, including transporting people to apply. Without knowing what he was applying to do And you'll know what to do when the time comes. 'I want the Election Commission to examine it carefully. Because if they rush to announce and e mphasize that they will follow the timeline, the Election Commission secretary and the Election Commission may be prosecuted like the previous Election Commission members who were imprisoned for 4 years. Therefore, when the Election Commission has a duty to do duty Don't let the wrong choice be made. There is clear evidence. It's not already certified. Then pick it up later like choosing MPs. On May 14, when it was found that no action could be taken, I thought that the Election Commission would investigate carefully and be transparent before making an announcement. And it would be better to take it 1-2 months later than the scheduled calendar. In order to get the right senator and not cause any problems,' Mr. Somchai said. Mr. Somchai also said that he had also received information that an Election Commission official had told Senate candidates to change groups. Because it was found that there were many applicants among farmers. So I was told to change to another group. This shows that there is a process th at seems to influence the selection. That may become a problem in the future and raise the question of why there is a senator. The acquisition of a senator may cause a scandal that is worse than what was previously accused. Senator recruiting again. Source: Thai News Agency
