Earlier the Court accepted the Democrats' petition calling for its ruling on whether or not the bill is constitutional. The move is expected to delay the royal endorsement of the bill.
Mr. Banhan indicated that the interpretation is under the Court's jurisdiction, but personally he deems that the bill does not breach Section 154 of the constitution as claimed by the opposition. He said that there should not be any problem to forward the matter for the royal endorsement.
Meanwhile, Secretary General of the Prime Minister Suranand Vejjajiva revealed that the Secretariat of the Cabinet is currently examining the details of the charter amendment bill. He expected that the process would take about a couple of days, and that the Prime Minister is likely to present the draft legislation for royal signature by October 1.
