Will nationality verification be extended, again?

According to an article in the Bangkok Post, the deadline for nationality verification as part of the passport/work permit application process is expected to be extended, following the opening of new processing offices in Bangkok, Samut Sakhon, Samut Prakan, Surat Thani and Chiang Mai later this month:
The Labour Ministry is likely to seek cabinet approval to extend the nationality verification deadline for Myanmar migrant workers... All migrants registering to work in Thailand were initially required to verify their nationality before Feb 28... The Labour Ministry later extended the deadline to June 14 as more than 1 million migrant workers had not yet completed their verification... the nationality verification process for about 1 million migrant workers was unlikely to meet the June 14 deadline.
