(Bangkok Post file photo)The House secretariat has extended for the fourth time the deadline for Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction Plc (Stecon) to finish building the new parliament complex, for another 382 days from Dec 15 to Dec 31 next year. House secretary-general Sorasak Pienvej said on Tuesday that he signed the deadline extension agreement with the Stecon management on Wednesday evening last week. The latest extension was not made solely at the request of the contractor, he said. Mr Sorasak was aware that Democrat Party member Watchara Phetthong had asked House Speaker Chuan Leekpai to investigate the latest deadline extension. With the fourth extension, the construction period would now be 2,764 days, or nearly eight years, the Democrat politician said.
