The Committee for Reconciliation and Political Reform has not accepted a proposal from Pracharaj Party leader Snoh Thienthong to replace the current Constitution with that of 1997 and to offer amnesty to banned politicians, a panel member said yesterday.
Meanwhile, Democrat Party advisor Banyat Bantadtan opposed Snoh's proposal to replace the 2007 Constitution with the 1997 Constitution, saying that if the committee took up Snoh's proposal, society would be in a turmoil because it knew for whom Snoh made the proposal.
"The committee may not be convinced by Snoh, because many of them understand the problems of the country and will not listen to him. This committee plays a significant role. Whether or not the country reels under political crises depends on the committee,'' said Banyat, a former Democrat leader.
These Democrats are unbelievable. Reconciliation means if you don't agree with us, then you are a puppet of Thaksin.
