Social media and online communities were dominated by discussions about politics and alleged corruption. Many Thais retweeted a campaign against corruption, which was supported and led by the country’s Prime Minister together with other organizations, such as finance and banking companies. Locals thought it was a quality campaign and would help gain trust of foreign investors. Rumours the PM Prayuth Chanocha degraded former Thailand’s PM Thaksin Chinnawatr following corruption allegations were observed.
Locals also discussed the council’s rejection of the draft constitution on Sunday, which will further delay the country’s election, highlighting the council was appointed by Thailand's military rulers. A particular clause in the draft has been widely criticized as it enables a 23-member panel to take over government during a "national crisis". Some people criticized the draft constitution and said it would “erode” the power of political parties in favour of the army and prevent a genuine democracy from being established.
