New Constitution returned to the government from the palace

The government has received the new constitution from His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn last Friday for amendments within 30-day timeframe, Deputy Prime Minister Wisanu Krea-ngarm said on Monday.

He said he was not worried with the timeframe and the procedures to be undertaken the 30-day period which include examination of the amendments by the Council of State and traditional crafting of the charter in paper.

Constitution Drafting Committee chairman Meechai Ruchupan, meanwhile, assured that his committee would not take a long time to amend the constitution.

He said the committee would meet Monday evening to discuss the time needed to amend the charter which should be as quick as possible so that there would be enough time for the traditional crafting of the charter.

Regarding the amendments, Meechai said the matter was confidential and could not be revealed for the time being.
