The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) is ready to support the Election Commission in holding debates on charter draft, NCPO spokesman Colonel Piyapong Klinpan said Thursday.
He said the council was ready to support the EC in any activity and platform that was not in breach of the law. 
“We are ready to [give our] support if the EC wants to relax restrictions by allowing talks between people with varying views through a good atmosphere. We will not stop the commission – but the debate has to be within the frame of law,’’ he said.
He said there was only about two weeks before the public referendum will be held but intelligence services had not detected any unusual political movement that would bring about a disturbance. 
Piyapong said the destruction of eligible voter lists in Kamphaeng Phet was not the work of people with political motivations but two eight-year-old girls who did not know the significance of the documents.
They were released without being charged since they were young and had no intention of causing trouble.
