Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said yesterday that there would be an early general election unless the ongoing street protests turn violent.

Abhisit said that if constitutional amendments cleared the final reading on February 11 and new electoral rules were promulgated by late February or early March, one of his three conditions for early elections will have been met.

He said that dissolution of the House of Representatives in April, as has been speculated, was possible.

The premier added that he did not expect the ongoing protest by the People’s Alliance for Democracy to derail an early election.
