Govt still waiting on sending draft to King

- +

The draft amendment to the constitution has not yet been forwarded for royal endorsement, cabinet secretary-general Ampon Kitti-ampon said yesterday. 

Mr Ampon said the cabinet secretariat was still contacting the Office of His Majesty's Principal Private Secretary to obtain official permission to submit the draft for royal approval.

The draft seeking to amend the constitution's provisions governing the composition of the Senate was approved by a joint parliamentary sitting after its third reading on Saturday. Under the law, the prime minister has 20 days to submit the draft to His Majesty the King.
