Thailand’s new King rejects the ruling junta’s proposed constitution

  • The King’s objections were related to aspects which have appeared to limit the monarch’s sovereignty
  • Thais have been monitoring and looking out for signs of friction and power struggle between the monarch and the ruling junta
  • While the King’s right to reject the proposed constitution is legitimised by the charter, this act is considered to be unusual as the Thai monarchy has traditionally preferred to hold a symbolic role above politics
