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.
