BANGKOK, June 10 (Bernama) — The general who led the bloodless coup to topple Thaksin Shinawatra’s government in 2006 is willing to join the latter’s sister if her party leads the next Thai government.

General Sonthi Boonyaratglin, leader of the Matubhum party, said his party was prepared to join either the Democrat-led government or Pheu Thai-led government after the general election.

“We would like to join the next government even if Pheu Thai leads after the July 3 elections,” he told Bernama.
