(RTTNews) – About sixty per cent of the eligible 46 million people are expected to vote on a draft constitution at a national referendum in Thailand on Sunday. The Thai Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont during his weekly TV talk program on Saturday hoped the turnout to be high and that the draft charter would be accepted at the referendum.
He further reiterated that he would not return to politics after general election.
The Council for National Security (CNS), which ousted elected prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra last September, have said that one of the kingdom’s previous constitutions would be used if the electorate rejects the draft charter.
