Charter amendment bills submitted

- +

Three new bills seeking to amend some sections of the 2007 constitution, backed by MPs of Pheu Thai and other coalition parties and some appointed senators, have been submitted to Parliament President Somsak Kiatsuranont. 

Leading the legislators to submit the charter amendment bills were Direk Thuengfang, a Nonthaburi senator, and Udomdej Rattanasathien, a Pheu Thai MP for Nonthaburi.

The first bill seeks to amend Sections 68 and 237 so that the leader and executive committee members of a political party would not be stripped of their election rights and the party would not be dissolved in the event  a party candidate is found guilty of electoral fraud.
