Thai Protests Leaders Welcome PM’s Reconciliation Plan

Leaders of Thailand’s anti-government protesters say they will consider a new government reconciliation plan. Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva’s proposal to end nearly eight weeks of protests includes holding elections in November.

The protest leaders said Tuesday the government proposal needs further consideration and they will decide on a response later.

“We welcome this framework,” said Sean Boonpracong, a spokesman for the group. “I think if Mr. Abhisit would like to see no more body count within a framework of peace, step-by-step negotiation, I think it’s a good direction.”
