Which any policy activities that may affect people, they have to get involved from the outset and people can carry out political activities by themselves. In the Constitution of the Kingdom of Thailand, 1997 and continuously until 2007, has an important intention to change the politics of politicians into people's politics by promoting the rights and freedom of the people participation in the political process of the people. Which contributes to democratic learning and political consciousness.
