'No rush' to move on charter
The government will not rush to finalise its decision on the format for rewriting the charter, PM's Office Minister Woravat Auapinyakul said yesterday."We are not in a hurry and will strive to increase public participation in the matter," he said.
Woravat said the prime minister had instructed Interior Minister Yongyuth Wichaidit to organise a series of public hearings in order to gauge sentiment before deciding how to proceed with the next move on charter change.
The coalition parties will not adopt a stand on the charter rewriting format at this juncture, he said.
The government and coalition allies are still determined to rewrite the charter but need time to choose the right format, he added.
