:1. To maintain the sovereignty of the Thai people.:2. To maintain the national security.:3. To maintain the economic welfare of the Thai people in accordance to the National Economical Project.:4. To protect the equality of the Thai people.:5. To maintain the people's rights and liberties insofar as they are not inconsistent any of the above-mentioned principles.:6.
