KAS experts discuss German Basic Law and German Electoral System

The two-ballot voting system in the general election is back. What does that mean for the political landscape in Thailand and the voters? What are the similarities with the German electoral system?

For the last couple of months, Thailand has been through a parliamentary battle about charter amendments. Now one of the most significant bills has been passed: Thai citizens will again be able to vote for a constituency MP and on a separate ballot for one’s preferred party. It also raises the number of constituency MPs from 350 to 400 and reduces the number of list MPs from 150 to 100. How will these new rules affect elections and politics in general? Will large parties in particular benefit from this reform, as some observers say?

The semblance to the German electoral system is striking. Therefore, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Thailand, in cooperation with the IDS, will hold a lecture with Dr. Katja Gelinsky and Mr. Tobias Montag who specialize in German Basic Law and the German electoral system respectively. Both experts will highlight specificities of the German model and explain what it means concretely for German citizens, parties, and the political field nowadays.

Please join us on September 15th, 13:00 – 15:30 hrs, on Zoom.
