Thailand's New Constitution Draft Ready for Review by Junta-established Council

Thailand's constitution drafters have submitted the draft of a new national charter to an advisory council for review, nearly a year after the military took power from an elected government. The military abolished an earlier constitution after the May 22 coup, and the government operates under a temporary charter. The junta later picked the drafters and a 250-member National Reform Council to help write a new constitution. Constitution Drafting Committee spokesman Lertrat Rattanavanich says he hopes the new constitution will move the country past cycles of political conflicts. http://feeds.foxnews.com/~r/foxnews/world/~3/Stlom7Pwy2k/ http://www.wochit.com
