The opposition Pheu Thai Party resolved on Wednesday to back the “people’s charter” put forward by the civil group Internet Law Reform Dialogue (iLaw).
Pheu Thai leader Sompong Amornwiwat called a party meeting on Wednesday morning before the Parliament began its session on voting for the draft proposed by iLaw.
Sompong asked all party MPs if they were for the iLaw draft, and most of them raised their hand.
MP Sutin Klangsang told the press later that his party was initially concerned that this charter draft can be seen as a violation of Article 255 of the Constitution, which states that Thailand’s administrative structure cannot change from a constitutional monarchy.
However, he said, Pheu Thai is not worried about this issue anymore because Parliament president checked the draft on Monday and said it is does not violate the current charter.
“If we are wrong, then the first person to be charged under this matter will be the president,” he said.
