BANGKOK — On Aug. 7, Thailand will be asked whether to adopt a new constitution.
An unofficial English translation of the second version of what’s proposed to be the next constitution was published Friday. It was translated by the United Nations, International Commission of Jurists and International IDEA.
“The United Nations Office of the Resident Coordinator in Thailand has collaborated with the International Commission of Jurists and International IDEA to produce an unofficial English translation of the 2016 Draft Constitution of the Kingdom of Thailand produced by the Constitution Drafting Commission,” read the note accompanying the document posted online. “This unofficial English translation is provided as a public service for reference only and has no legal authority. The original Thai text as formally published by the Royal Thai Government remains the sole authority having legal force.”
