        Research on the evolution of the Thai constitution in the field of people's participation. The researchers examined the evolution of the constitution that allowed people to participate, and to study the opinions of experts in various fields on people's participation in various roles as stipulated in the constitution. By studying and collecting data from relevant documents and studying the evolution of people's participation in the provisions of the Administrative Constitution and the 16 constitutions of the Kingdom of Thailand.

        The results showed that allowing people to participate in the constitution each issue from the first issue to the current issue, there will be an evolution that increases and decreases to a certain extent. The main reason is from the intentions of those who came to rule the country at that time and most of the individual constitution drafting committees.

        From research on opening opportunities for people to participate in terms of exercising the right to vote and running for election in various constitutions in the past, it was found that most of the people's participation in the exercise of voting rights was an individual right to exercise the right or not. If they don't exercise your right to vote, it's not a crime or disqualified in any aspect. Except for the 16th Constitution, which stipulates that the exercise of voting rights is the duty of all Thai people who have reached the age of 18 on 1st January in the year of that election. If you do not exercise your right to vote, you will lose your rights as stipulated by law.

        In the various constitutions derived from the coup d'état, it was found that there were no provisions relating to the participation of the people truly. However, it is only to prescribe the participation of a specific group of people. As for the constitution that was drawn up by a committee with people involved in drafting it. Whether directly or indirectly found that there is no provision in that constitution to allow people to participate in various fields, appearing in both direct and indirect public participation.
