BANGKOK, Nov. 4 (Xinhua) --Thailand's Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Wednesday forwarded legislation on public referendums to the parliament, government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri confirmed. 

The government-proposed legislation on public referendums is yet to be deliberated and turned into law by the House of Representatives and Senate in due course.

If approved by most legislators in the house and senate, public referendums may be conducted for most people nationwide to make a decisive judgment on significant issues being handled by the legislative or executive branches, such as constitutional amendment bids and major resolutions passed by the cabinet of ministers, according to the government spokesman.
