Kittichai Ngamchaipisit is one of the founders of the Commoners Party, nearly 10 years in the making by activists who aim to amend the constitution for increased citizen participation and eventually hold a new referendum on their draft constitution. Kittichai likens the Party to a market where civil society groups can sell their policies. The Commoners Party hopes for seats in parliament as one wing of the civil society movement as a policy bridge to parliament. Even if they do not win any seats, Kittichai says, the party will continue to fight for citizens.
