The Democrat Party yesterday countered deposed prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra's criticism of the 2007 charter, saying the country's problems did not lie with its constitution. 

Democrat list-MP Ong-art Klampaiboon said there is nothing wrong with the current charter, which is written based on the principles found in the 1997 charter, popularly known as the "People's Constitution".

He was responding to a comment Thaksin made on Facebook, saying that the current charter was "outdated" because it failed to take a more "holistic approach" to solving problems.
