PM Yingluck says she bows to charter court’s power


BANGKOK, April 11 – Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has stood firm that she did not dismiss the Constitution Court’s power, but admitted that she was concerned with the upcoming judgement.

Admitting her anxiety over the court’s ruling, the caretaker PM said she would accept the court’s verdict as long as she is treated equally, using the same standards (as other politicians),

“If we look at the mounting problems negatively, we can never solve them. I try to look at them positively, let go, be patient and solve the problems prudently and carefully,” she said.

Referring to a statement by Democrat leader Abhisit Vejjajiva who called for her resignation from the caretaker role to end the political impasse, she said Mr Abhisit should be well aware of the imposition of the Constitution which requires a caretaker government and a general election after the House dissolution.

She urged the Election Commission to clearly announce its determination to hold a general election and called on Thai people to help the country move on under the law.

“We can’t even find an answer today on how to bring the country back to democratic rule,” she said. (MCOT online news)
