Oh yes ... how many would that be now? I've lost count.

How many constitutional rewrites that weren't forced by the military?

Good for Pheu Thai!  The Constitution certainly needs an overhaul.  Probably won't succeed first time, but the issue needs to be raised and raised again, especially to show the younger generation that someone is listening, even if the generals are not.

depending on what issues pt are focused on and ultimately their real intent/goals.

Somkid said that Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha should not neglect the fact that senators had too much power and could choose a premier twice -- a period of eight years.

Wasn't that the point when he appointed 250 senators ( 3 months before the start of the election), so that he would maintain control even if he lost the election?

 

Please correct me if i am wrong but i'm sure the prime minister is not necessary the leader of the winning party after an election, but is voted by the senate.

Best written on an Etch-A-Sketch so the next gang can change it easily.

Treason, sedition.... just to announce that they planning to present a proposal to change the constitution? To whose benefit?I

Not presented, not even planned.

I was in country in July when last constitution was voted  on.  But recall how opposition was put down.  I couldn't believe  thai people so ignorant.   But I'm sure many didnt have access to BKK post.

Do they hope to change something at 4am to bring Thaksin back?

In their dream perhaps but they will more importantly ramp up the opposition to the current regime government and shorten the timeline before there is more blood on the streets.  Which seems inevitable at some stage now with the way the internet is democratising  the L.O.S. and upsetting the status quo.
