Key leaders of the Thai coalition government - Bhumjaithai and Chart Thai Pattana parties - agreed at a meeting Wednesday to jointly push for an amendment to some parts of the country's 2007 charter, Thai News Agency reported.

Chumpol Silpa-archa, the leader of Chart Thai Pattana, disclosed after the meeting that they had agreed to amend an electoral system from multiple-seat constituencies to single-seat constituencies, which is under Section 94 of the constitution.

Chumpol also said the two coalition parties had agreed to amend Section 190, which requires a government to seek a parliamentary approval prior to committing to any foreign agreement, be amended.

Meanwhile, in a related development the leading opposition Puea Thai Party reiterated that the party will not participate in the charter amendment's process.

The party has still demanded for restoration of the 1997 constitution, party list MP Chalerm Yubamrung said.
