Constitution Drafting Committee (CDC) chairman Meechai Ruchupan has indicated that a non-elected outsider will be allowed to become prime minister under the new constitution.
However, the outsider must be chosen and endorsed by the House of Representatives.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with the Bangkok Post, Mr Meechai said the new CDC has not concluded that a premier will only be chosen from among elected MPs.
