His Majesty the King on Friday issued a royal command appointing the members of the new National Broadcasting and Telecommunication Commission (NBTC).

The list of the commission's 11 members is awaiting formal proclamation in the Royal Gazette.

The 11 members of the NBTC, the nation's first telecoms and broadcasting regulatory body, mandated by the 1997 constitution, were elected by senators in a secret ballot on Sept 5, ending a process which began 14 years ago but which has been beset by lengthy delays, including political, bureaucratic and business interference.

The NBTC is tasked with regulating the broadcasting and telecom industries with the aim of turning frequencies into national assets to be partly allocated for the public benefit. The commission's 11 members will serve a term of six years.

Former Election Commission secretary-general Suthiphon Thaveechaiyagarn, one of the 11 commmissioners, said the NBTC will have its first meeting on Monday to apportion tasks among members and draw up three master plans to supervise television, telecommunications and frequencies management.
