Democrat Party spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut said on Friday that Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva received the government's invitation to join the political reform council and already turned down such invitation.
In a 2-page letter, Abhisit said he supported the reconciliation process. He also referred to the framework completed during when he was the prime minister. He also expressed disappointment that the framework is not pursued by this government.
Abhisit also said that the council is just a tool to diffuse public resistance to the government's amnesty bill.
