The new constitution does not shut the door on the possibility of a national unity government being formed, Constitution Drafting Committee chairman Meechai Ruchupan said Tuesday.
This is essentially a coalition government where all major parties temporarily shelve their differences and agree to work together until a prevailing crisis is resolved.
Mr Meechai was referring to a proposal floated by ex-Democrat Party leader Bhichai Rattakul that three parties form an alliance with the military.
