Abhisit supports call for lifting the ban on political activities


Democrat party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva voiced his support for the proposal of the National Reform Steering Assembly that the NCPO should lift the ban on political activities, saying that the move will not undermine national stability.

He also expressed concern over the restriction of free expressions regarding the draft charter and the referendum which, he said, may make the draft constitution illegitimate.


Abhisit on Wednesday visited Mr Suthep Thuagsuban, chairman of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee Foundation, to express his well wishes on the occasion of the latter’s 67th birthday anniversary.

He insisted that he still enjoys good relationship with Suthep although the relationship between the Democrat party and the PDRC foundation remains an ocean apart.

The Democrat party and PDRC share different opinions regarding the draft charter.
