Meanwhile, on Tuesday acting Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra will meet with head of the country’s election commission to discuss the issue of postponing the date of elections to the National Assembly of Thailand. The oppositionists strive for cancellation of these elections. Thai media reported with reference to sources close to the matter that Shinawatra does not intend to cancel the elections and may offer the election commission to do it independently. Earlier, the Constitutional Court confirmed the commission’s authority to postpone the voting date by its own decision disregarding the government’s opinion.
On Monday, leader of the oppositionist Democratic Party Abhisit Vejjajiva, whose political alliance is currently boycotting the elections, told journalists that “the Democratic Party could consider the issue of its participation in the election process in case of setting a new date of elections.”
