BANGKOK, 12 March 2012 (NNT) – Prime Minister of Thailand Yingluck Shinawatra has said her plan to amend the Constitution is not for the benefit of someone in particular, adding that she would welcome opinions from all sides.
The Prime Minister said, following the protest by the group of the yellow shirt or People Alliance’s for Democracy (PAD) against the charter amendment, that she would like to see the restoration of national unity and that she would listen to all suggestions and comments from everyone.
Meanwhile, she added that what her Deputy Prime Minister, Police Captain Chalerm Yubumrung, said about Mr. Thaksin Shinawatra’s return was his personal opinion, although, she said, it would depend on the parliamentary process.
She said the charter amendment of section 291 might have gotten people thinking that it was an attempt to bring her brother back while, in fact, it was merely about the establishment of a Constitution Drafting Assembly (CDA). When asked by one reporter point blank whether she though Mr. Thaksin would return to Thailand, the Prime Minister simply replied “no”.
