Whips mull the fate of 312 lawmakers

- +

Opposition whips are to discuss what action to take against the 312 MPs and senators who proposed the "unconstitutional" charter amendment to change the composition of the Senate. 

Opposition chief whip Jurin Laksanavisit said on Thursday that the discussions would be held at a meeting next week.

The Constitution Court said on Wednesday that the proposed amendment was unconstitutional. Judges ruled by a vote of 5-4 that the amendment to make the Senate a fully elected chamber violates Section 68. The court also voted 6-3 that the process adopted to pass the amendment was improper and violated Section 291.
