Phue Thai key leader Phongthep Thepkanjana Sunday thanked the National Reform Council (NRC) members who voted down the charter draft for the sake of the country.

To reject the draft now is better than waiting it to be shot down in the national referendum process initially due to be held next January, he told Nation TV, explaining that it could save time by rejecting the draft before a referendum.
However, he wished the new drafting committee will not put the controversial issues or clauses from the failed draft in the new draft.
He said it was acceptable that a general election will be delayed as long as a democratic charter draft is written.
