REFERENDUM SPECIAL

Nothing will change and life will carry on as usual. However, I will have to keep up to date with consequences after the constitution is in place and see how politicians and government officials maintain their bargaining power.

TEERAPONG S, LAWYER

If the draft makes it through the referendum, people’s basic rights, liberty and freedom will deteriorate. Also, conflicts among people in society will also persist. The draft will not be able to settle political disputes and guarantee that political turmoil will not erupt.

WITTAYAKORN BOONRUANG, FREELANCE JOURNALIST

The election method under Meechai [Ruchuphan]’s draft is biased towards a coalition government. From what I understand, a single party cannot form a strong and stable government. I am afraid that Thai politics will move backwards to the period before 1997 [when the so-called People’s Constitution was enacted.)

The government will not be able to initiate or run populist policies as the coalition government parties and appointed senators can put a brake on them.

I’m afraid people’s votes will be devalued as we can only select politicians we like but not select favourite policies.

SUPACHEEP A, COMPUTER ENGINEER

My life will change because Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha will no longer be the prime minister. The country’s image will be a bit better and it will be a good sign for the economy and international relations.
