NEW UPDATES Asean Affairs  30 June 2014  

Draft interim constitution completed

Just a month after the military takeover, Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha, leader of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), announced late Friday that a draft interim Constitution was now complete and was being scrutinised by legal experts.
Army chief Gen Prayuth said during his weekly address on television on Friday that the draft interim constitution would be considered by NCPO next week before it would be forwarded for Royal endorsement.
It was expected that the draft interim Constitution would be enforced in July, he said, adding that the national legislative assembly would be established about a month later while an interim cabinet could start performing duties in September.
Gen Prayuth said it would take some time to find knowledgeable qualified persons from every sectors and province to join the national reform council.
He said he believed the council could start performing duty around early October, or about two months after the interim constitution was enforced.
The national reform council would undertake reform in every field including politics, economics, social, environmental, energy, judicial system and others, said Gen Prayuth.
The national reform council would submit recommendations to the national legislative assembly which would draft the new Constitution, expected to become enforced in July 2015.
After the permanent Consitution was enforced, the NCPO would then organise a free and fair general election which would become a “solid  foundation for a perfect democracy and constructive political system for the country”  and not burdened by political conflicts as people had suffered in the past.
“Everything should be settled within 2015,” said Gen Prayuth, adding that people would have a fully elected government.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
