Thailand Has New Constitution, But Old Concerns Remain

This article is more than 3 years old.

Thailand's new king signed a new constitution for the country last week and the military junta that runs the country says it clears the way for new elections.

But the BBC's Jonathan Head (@pakhead) says Thailand has now had 20 constitutions since 1932 so the country's citizens are skeptical the new one will make any difference. He speaks with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson from Bangkok.

Note: This BBC interview can be heard in the Here & Now podcast or with the WBUR app.
