Military-installed cabinet accepted the Interior Ministry’s request to withdraw the draft bill on the proposed establishment of a special administrative zone around Suvarnabhumi airport from scrutiny by the Council of State.

The move comes because it was the Thaksin government-initiated project and was blasted in a series of recent polls conducted by the military installed’s ministry.

Deputy military’s government spokeswoman Netpreeya Chumchaiyo said the request was accepted after the ministry forwarded the findings and recommendations of a series of surveys on the draft bill.

The ministry has also suggested that the government set up an organisation in the form of a land development panel to coordinate with state-run agencies involved in the development of this specific area ( around Suvarnabhumi Airport ).

She said it was still too early to say whether the government would approve or disapprove the bill.

If the Interior Ministry continued to push for it, then it would have to be thoroughly reviewed and amended before being returned to the cabinet for reconsideration, she said.
