Coalition parties unified on charter change

- +

BANGKOK - The four coalition political parties on Monday resolved that the constitution must be amended because the current charter is "undemocratic". 

The Pheu Thai, Chartthaipattana, Palang Chon and Chart Pattana parties issued a joint statement on Monday at the parliament denouncing the 2007 charter as a product of the Sept 19, 2006 coup. They claimed that the voters were forced to approve it in a national referendum.
