Talking About Thailand's New Constitution: What the political parties think of the new charter

On August 7, 2016 the people of Thailand will get to vote in a referendum on their country's 20th constitution. The government is making a big effort to inform people about the contents of the charter, but it has imposed very tight restrictions on any debate, and has banned campaigning against it. The FCCT has already hosted a spokesman for the Constitutional Drafting Commission, who was not allowed to take part in a debate. 

There will have spokespeople from the three biggest parties - Kasit Piromya for the Democrats, Pongthep Thepkanjana from Puea Thai and Anutin Charnvirakul from Bhum Jai Thai, to discuss the constitution. 

This will be one of the only opportunities to hear different opinions expressed by veteran political players about a charter which, if passed, will reshape this country's political landscape.
