Thailand has had 20 constitutions and charters since the overthrow of absolute monarchy in 1932. Falling just a few days after father’s day, the socially significant holiday that also remebers the birthday of the late King Bhumibol, it is a welcome holiday for those in Thailand and often enables people to take an extended break by taking only one or two days off work between the two holidays.
Many of the redrafted versions, from which the authority to implement all other laws is based, have been adopted following military coups, including the current administration, which introduced its version on April 6th 2017. The one constant has been that all the changes are a variation of a constitutional monarchy. This constant of the monarchy during times of great change reflects the respect and admiration that the Thai people have for their monarchy.
