New Constitution draft to be ready next April

BANGKOK, Nov 22 -- National Legislative Assembly (NLA) Vice President Surachai Liangboonlertchai said Saturday the draft of a new Constitution will be completed by the middle of next April.
Mr Surachai said, while chairing a programme called the ‘National Legislative Assembly meeting the people’ held at the parliament building, that the NLA has established a committee to compile opinions on drafting the Constitution from every sector in which the NLA would forward them to the Constitution Drafting Committee (CDC) so that they could be used during the charter drafting process.
Representatives of democracy networks nationwide could send opinions to the NLA now, as the new draft Donstitution would be ready in mid April 2015, he said.
Saturday’s programme, held for the first time by the NLA, will be conducted on a regular basis as it would allow the people to express opinions which would be used in national reform and on drafting the constitution, said Mr Surachai, adding that concerned parties wish the “new charter to be perfect.”
In another development, Borwornsak Uwanno, secretary-general of King Prajadhipok’s Institute, said the new generations would have a significant role in leading the country in the right direction under a democratic system and under a free system which offers justice.
Mr Borwornsak, also chairman of CDC, said besides being knowledgable, the new generation must be equipped with fine ethics by realising that others’ advantages are just important as one's own benefits.
