Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has insisted that the national strategy bill does not breach the constitution and has been given a good public airing.

Gen Prayut was speaking after Pheu Thai Party lawyer Ruangkrai Leekitwattana petitioned the Office of the Ombudsman on Monday to look into whether the national strategy bill, and a bill on plans and procedures for national reform, violate the charter.

He also asked for the matter to be forwarded to the Constitutional Court for consideration.
