Democrat urges Pheu Thai to attend meeting with EC


BANGKOK, 15 April 2014, – The Democrat Party has urged the Pheu Thai Party to send one of its executives to attend a meeting with the Election Commission on April 22nd to discuss a date of a fresh election.

The announcement was made yesterday by the Democrat Party Spokesperson Chawanont Intrakomulsut, who accused the ruling Pheu Thai Party of causing rifts among Thais by taking no action against those committing lese majeste offenses, ignoring the judicial system and corruption cases, and manipulating the United front for Democracy against Dictatorship ( the Redshirt) to intimidate anyone who opposes the government.

The spokesperson urged the EC meeting to find a solution to preventing the Pheu Thai party from repeating the alleged offenses should it return to power after the election.

According to the Spokesperson, Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva will attend the meeting. He also suggested that the April 22nd meeting be broadcast live for public viewing.
