His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn has advised changes should be made to the new constitution draft concerning the Royal Prerogative, Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha said Tuesday.

Prayut revealed Tuesday that following the new King’s consideration, the draft would be returned for amendments to be carried out in few points. However, the premier did not elaborate which points would be amended.

The Office of His Majesty’s Principal Private Secretary contacted the government that some legislation on the draft’s second section on the monarch would need to be discussed, Prayut said. 

The changes should be done within a month and the whole legislation process should take another two or three months, the premier said.
