The cover reads: Step back again and again
[Article summary: The former Prime Minister Thaksin has to take the first step back from reconciliation bills and a second step back from the charter amendment bill.

The cover reads: The Pheu Thai Party is scared of ‘Prime Minister Article 7’
[Article summary: As a consequence of a negativity and conflict around the charter amendment and reconciliation bills, there was a rumor that if MPs of the Pheu Thai Party and the Red Shirts are still pushing and fighting to pass those bills then it is more likely to bring the country into bloodshed.

It states that “Whenever no provision of this Constitution is applicable to any case, it shall be decided in accordance with the Constitutional practice in democratic regime of government with the King as Head of State.” So, unsurprisingly that Pheu Thai party is afraid of this Article because it will require monarchical intervention to kick start a new round of new elections if the Pheu Thai keeps pushing for Thaksin amnesty despite the turmoil it seems to create.]
