The House of Representatives will not accept the imminent Constitution Court ruling on the legality of proposed charter changes, according to House Speaker Somsak Kiatsuranont. 

The Constitution Court is scheduled to give its verdict on the constitutionality of planned charter changes tomorrow. The reforms propose to change the way that senators are appointed, making the Senate fully-elected.
