Thai PM assures general election will be held, confident Democrats to gain more seats

BANGKOK, March 26 — Reiterating that a fresh general election would be held in Thailand, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said Saturday that he is confident his ruling Democrat Party would gain more seats in the lower house, while asking major opposition Puea Thai Party to appoint its leader so that people would know who they would elect as the new premier for the country.

Mr Abhisit told journalists following a meeting of his party, held at a hotel, that he is optimistic the Democrat Party would gain more seats in the House of Representatives in every region in the upcoming general election.

There are still several projects which need to be implemented, but this doesn’t mean that the government has achieved nothing in the past two years of its administration, he said.
