Thaksin resigns from Thai Rak Thai
Ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra resigns from Thai Rak Thai Party on Tuesday, TRT's deputy leader Pongthep Thepkarnchana said.
Pongthep was reading a letter of Thaksin sent from London.
Thaksin, TRT leader, claimed that he decided to resign to solve the chaos in the country.
Thaksin who is now in London sent his message today to party members about his political future and the party's directions. The party will give a press briefing to tell the public about the decision.
Thaksin was ousted last month when the military seized power from his government while he was in New York to attend UN General Assembly.
He then travelled to London where his family has an apartment to live with his daughter.
Thaksin's message came two days after Gen Surayud Jalanont was appointed as the prime minister of an interim government.
