Pheu Thai to send MPs to flood-hit regions


BANGKOK, 21 October 2013 Pheu Thai spokesman, Prompong Nopparit, revealed that the Pheu Thai party would cancel their weekly meeting on October 22 in order to allow its MPs to visit the flood hit regions and keep themselves updated on the current flood situation. 

However, the party will maintain a meeting for its various committees on October 22 in order to evaluate the work and progress that had been made in the past two years in office.

As for the Phra Viharn Temple dispute on which the International Court of Justice’s (ICJ) verdict will be announced on November 11, the Pheu Thai spokesman called on the opposition party to stop using this issue to create more rifts of social discontent, and attempt to make the public believe that Thailand would lose part of her land as an end result. He urged that all sides wait patiently for the actual verdict before creating one’s own interpretation of the matter.
