No more $ for infrastructure projects

Well it’s done,  at least for now, the Constitution Court has ruled that the government-proposed bill to allow the Finance Ministry to raise THB 2 trn in loans for the infrastructure development projects has been rendered unconstitutional.

The court unanimously agreed with a vote of 8-0 that the content of the bill violated provisions stated in the first paragraph of Section 169 of the charter. It also voted 6-2 that the bill’s legislative procedures went against Section 170 of the constitution.

We are still without a functioning government in this country, the BOI still can’t approve any new projects, no $ for farmers, etc etc etc blah blah blah.

So what’s next?

  • The usual, everything is sitting in the court system in regards to:
  • Impeachment of Yingluck re graft related to the rice scheme
  • Ruling upon whether the election is invalid
  • Ruling upon anything against Pheu Thai as the Democrat’s as not allowed to be convicted of anything

I still doubt a coup would happen as that would just bring another big group of protestors to Bangkok => fighting => more rubbish. So lets just wait and see how it all unfolds.
