SUNISA LERTPAKAWAT, A PHEU THAI MEMBER AND FORMER DEPUTY GOVERNMENT SPOKESWOMAN

If the draft passes the referendum, people’s right to get social welfare, free education, public health welfare and so on would deteriorate. The draft does not guarantee all people’s equality under state welfare and access to national resources. 
 

VAS TINGSMITH, PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION

Personally, my life would be the same. However, the draft would have a positive impact on my organisation. The commission would function under an organic law due to be written after the draft is passed. Under the organic law, the NHRC could work faster than under the current Act. 
 

KAMOL RUANGSOOKSRI, BURI RAM MUANG MAYOR

I cannot see how things would go if the draft were approved. The PM has told nothing about what would happen if the draft gets approved or rejected. If it were turned down, would the military regime stay on in office to rewrite it or pick one of the past constitutions and amend it?
 

KRISADA MONTHATHIP, BAN SOMMAI VILLAGE HEAD, UDON THANI PROVINCE 

No change would occur since I would have to carry out my duty as a village head as usual. No matter which political bloc takes office, I have to pass on its policies to villagers. I will do my best to serve the villagers.
