BANGKOK, May 15 (Xinhua) -- Thai lawmakers and senators finally agreed to fix the date for the third and final reading of the charter amendment bill on June 5 after the lengthy debate wholesale oakley sunglasses, the opposition chief whip Jurin Laksanavisit said on Tuesday.

The joint session of parliament, after 15 days of discussion, on Monday voted 348 to 95 to pass the draft to revise Section 291 of the charter, allowing the setting of a Constitution Drafting Assembly (CDA) whose main duty is to draw up a new version of the supreme law.

The parliamentary members did not yet reach an agreement on the schedule for the third reading yesterday.

According to the draft, the new drafting body will be made up of 99 members -- 77 members elected from each province while 22 others appointed by the parliament.

Of overall 22 selected CDA members, six will be experts in public law, another six in political science or public administration, plus 10 with experience in politics, public administration, economic or social fields or charter drafting.

Senator Jet Sirathananont said the proposed ban would serve as an assurance that drafters will not be influenced by the lure of personal gains.

The charter, therefore, has been frequently attacked for undemocratic origin by the opposition and the incumbent Pheu Thai-led administration which is backed by the ex-PM Thaksin.
