Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva will not stay in power for a full term – he will dissolve Parliament in April next year, Government whip Withaya Kaewparadai said yesterday.

He said if Parliament cleared the bills to amend the Constitution according to legislative procedures in February, the PM would dissolve the House in April. If Parliament did not pass the charter amendment bills in February, the PM would dissolve the House in February and call a general election in April.

“The PM has said that he would not serve a full term,” Withaya said.

He was speaking to a meeting of Nakhon Si Thammarat MPs and Democrat Party branch executives to prepare themselves for election rallies.
