BANGKOK, 8 November 2013 The Phuea Thai Party on Thursday reiterated the government will not re-submit laws that were similar to the amnesty bill to the House of Representatives, and that the party is preparing to pair up with the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) to visit people around the country and clarify the government’s various agendas.
Phuea Thai Party spokesperson Phromphong Noppharit announced the result of the party’s special meeting session on Thursday, which was attended by Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. Mr. Phromphong said the party members at the meeting thanked the party’s representatives in the Lower House for their efforts to seek an exit strategy for the country, via the removal of the amnesty bill and the conciliation bills that were under House agenda.
Mr. Phromphong asserted there would not be submission of similar laws into the House of Representatives, in order to avoid causing conflicts within society.
