    Constitution amendment motion dies

    Constitution amendment motion dies


    (BangkokPost.com) - The proposal to amend the constitution was automatically killed by parliamentary procedure on Friday after seven backers withdrew their support, meaning the measure no long has enough sponsors to be presented to the House.

    The charter rewrite motion was lodged by 164 lawmakers last week, but the number went down to 124 on Friday.

    At least 126 parliamentarians are needed as signed sponsors in order to put the measure onto the official agenda of Parliament.

    Suphan Buri senator Prasit Photisuthon, one of the seven senators, said he pulled his backing for the amendment so that the supporters of the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD), would no longer have an excuse for their street rally against amendment.

    PAD core leaders, meanwhile, presented a list of 31,881 people to Senate Speaker Prasobsuk Boondech to impeach the lawmakers who backed the motion.

    The core leaders are scheduled to announce later Friday whether to continue to rally to oppose the charter rewrite.

    Great news. Hope it will bring some amount of stability.

    Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or an idiot from any direction.
