The government has vowed that the charter will be revised within the next four years, claiming that preparations have now begun for the formation of a panel that will examine the upcoming referendum on charter amendment.

In response to complaints from the Move Forward Party that the new leadership seems to be dragging its feet on the matter, Deputy Prime Minister Phumtham Wechayachai made the statement on Tuesday.

The panel’s appointment is in the hands of Mr. Phumtham. His nomination was approved by the government last Wednesday, nbsp.

Rewriting the contract is one of the top priorities set forth by the Pheu Thai-led administration.

I’m speaking with people from a variety of fields, including constitutional professionals, Mr. Phutham said. The vote should be held as soon as possible, and this government wants more people to participate in the contract rewrite process.

” The government will work to modify the contract and find ways to make sure it is well-received by all parties.” We will also adhere to the tenet that the constitution’s pages one and two may be left unaltered.

Parts of Chapter 1 describe Thailand as a second, unbroken land with democrats in power and the King as the head of state. Areas in Chapter 2 deal with the royal privilege.

According to Mr. Phumtham,” We will hold talks with Members and senators as well as civil organizations.” The contract update, however, must be finished within four years. The state wants it to happen fast because it is an urgent matter.

A Move Forward list-MP named Parit Wacharasindhu previously claimed that the president’s decision to establish a referendum research panels is merely an effort to buy time.

He cited the Pheu Thai Party’s promise on August 2 to keep a referendum on contract amendment, which also stated that the consumer may be involved in establishing the charter-redrafting assembly.

But, Mr. Parit claimed that the government appeared to be backtracking on its pledge to modify the mandate.

A prime ministerial buy, not a cupboard resolution, which calls for stronger lawful compliance, would form the study panel, according to the MP.

The contract revision process may be rushed, according to Deputy House Speaker Pichet Chuamuangphan on Tuesday.

He stated that a drafting forum may be established if the populace approved of amending the contract.
