Bhum Jai Thai calls for election postponement

Bhum Jai Thai party candidates Friday issued a statement to call on the government to defer the February 2 election until the situation has become peaceful.

The candidates, including Sopon Sarum, Bongjong Wongtrairat and Prachak Klaewkla, held a press conference to call for the election postponement.

Sopon told the press conference that his party had a stand to contest the election once the House was dissolved but his party did not want to see the election held amid severe rifts. He said the Bhum Jai Thai saw that there should be rules accepted by all sides before the election would be held.
