The Special Committee for Peacebuilding in the Three Southern Border Provinces is intensifying efforts to confront the challenges in establishing peace within the region.
Chairman Jaturong Chaiseang outlined the committee’s focused approach on legislative and parliamentary engagement as pivotal elements in driving successful peace negotiations.
At the core of the committee’s strategy lies the formulation of proposals to present before the House of Representatives. These proposals underscore the necessity for new legislation and revisions that actively bolster peace initiatives, notably reevaluating the application of laws like Martial Law within the area.
With an initial 90-day time frame in place, the committee anticipates the potential for an extension, guided by expert counsel and the imperative for comprehensive on-ground investigations.
This extension is deemed crucial as it will afford the committee the necessary duration to conduct exhaustive studies and field visits across the three southern border provinces. These field visits are poised to yield invaluable insights and community feedback, serving as pivotal inputs in crafting pragmatic and influential recommendations.
