Chaturon concerned PDRC to obstruct poll again

Caretaker Education Minister Chaturon Chaisang said Friday that parliamentary elections would not be possible in Thailand for a long time because the the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) would obstruct the poll and cause the election to be nullified again.

"The previous roles of the Constitutional Court and the PDRC mean Thailand will be free from an election for a long time. In the meantime they will take action to [do away with] the government, government coalition and politicians in the government side so that they can cause a vacuum and lead to political change and finally an 'outsider' government and political reform, as well as change in the political system to ensure that the Pheu Thai Party will not form the government again," he said.

He was commenting on the nullification of February 2 election.
