Constitution Drafting Committee chairman Meechai Ruchupan voiced his support for Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha's plea for the public to send their feedback to his four questions, defending that the idea was intended to make use of the feedback in the drafting of organic laws.

He defended that the idea which was announced by the prime minister last Friday during his weekly address was not intended to pave the way the military junta to stay longer in the office as misinterpreted by politicians and other critics.

Regarding the question about whether undesirable politicians should be allowed into politics, Meechai explained that public feedback to this question would give a clue to lawmakers to draft bill to meet the people's wish concerning undesirable politicians.

He stressed the need of public participation in the drafting of bills.
