Borwornsak Uwanno, now defunct chairman of Constutution Drafting Committee, told a press conference that he would not return as a new Constitution drafter.
He urged the public to monitor if the new draft written by a new committee will recognise the people as the sovereign and will aim at national reforms or not.
"It's saddening that the clause highlighting the power of the people - community, women, the poor and the underprivileged - would be deleted," he said.
He specifically thanked three generals who voted for the draft. On the other NRC members representing the military and voting No, he said it was natural for them to respect orders.
