Split of Bang Khae district back on the agenda

The split of Bang Khae district, the largest of all the 50 districts of Bangkok by population, is back on the agenda after it was not pushed strong enough to become effective with the 2010 district council elections. Khun Wisarut from the 2bangkok forum has found an article in the Daily News newspaper (เดลินิวส์) which shows that the split of this district is now again in discussion.

According to that article, the city council of Bangkok now sets up a working group to gather the facts like the necessary budget, do a public hearing in the district, so the issue can then be discussed in the next council meeting in June. As the next district council elections will be in 2014 and it is probably preferred to let the current council complete its term, there should be ample time to have the change be effective till then.
