“People’s Constitution” to take down “Prayut regime” rejected by parliament

Parliament rejected a draft of the so-called “People’s Constitution,” a proposed legislation to take down what Thais call the “Prayut regime” and scrap the 20 12 months nationwide technique. A former Democrat candidate told Thai PBS World that “Prayut regime” primarily permits the prime minister to manage the Senate and different organisations mandated beneath the constitution.
The “People’s Constitution” draft was rejected by parliament yesterday, with 249 MPs and 224 senators voting towards it, whereas 203 MPs and 3 senators voted in favour. But the secretary common of the Progressive Movement and a non-party reincarnation of the now-defunct Future Forward party, urged the general public to not lose hope.
Being Be the first of the draft in addition to monarchy reform, Piyabutr Saengkanokkul from the Progressive Movement says he hopes that the opposition MPs who voted in favor of the draft will include the charter issue in their parties’ policy platforms for the following election even though the present Constitution was written to make amending the country’s supreme regulation a tough task.
He urged fellow reformers to maintain preventing for true democracy and not to surrender their hope that the present Constitution may be altered at some point, added that all attempts to vary the Constitution by the people, as provided by the charter, have been obstructed and have didn’t pass even their first readings in parliament.
Piyabutr, together with Parit Wacharasindhu, a pacesetter of the reformist group “Re-Solution”, appeared together in entrance of Parliament on Tuesday to defend the draft and pleaded members of the Thai parliament to be open-minded, claiming that the proposed legislation is meant to dismantle the so-called “Prayut regime” that offers extra energy to PM Prayut Chan-o-cha and replace it with a fairer system that benefits all stakeholders.
Parit “Itim” Wacharasindhu, a major supporter of the People’s Constitution draft, expressed disappointment that the amendments draft was rejected outright by government MPs and senators.
He claims that the reformists’ proposal does not promote any drastic changes to the current political structure and won’t disadvantage any political actors, adding that Parliament’s rejection was simply another attempt to “close the door” on any move to change the present Constitution..
