EC recommends govt, protest leaders to talk on election schedule

The five Election Commission members Thursday issued a statement urging the caretaker government and the People's Democratic Reform Committee to hold a talk on the election date.

The statement was read by Somchai Srisutthiyakorn, the EC commissioner in charge of election organising.

The EC statement said it would be difficult to hold organise the election on February 2 because the situation was not normal and turmoil could occur.

The statement urged the government and the PDRC to talk to find a solution so that the election could be held in the orderly atmosphere.
