Thailand’s King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun has promulgated the new constitution in a ceremony held at the Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall in Bangkok.
His Majesty, also known as King Rama X, signed the constitution which was returned to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.
The signing of the new constitution paves the way for a return to democracy but still gives the army an influential role in politics.
This is the 20th constitution since 1932 in Thailand.
Which went ahead after the king had requested changes to the charter earlier this year that restore some significant areas of royal influence.
