Jatuporn proposes referendum for ending crisis

Jatuporn Prompan, the chairman of the United Front of Democracy against Dictatorship, Friday proposed that a national referendum should be held on the political impasse.

Jatuporn said since the next election is unlikely to happen, a referendum should be held on the proposal of Suthep Thaugsuban, the secretary general of the People's Democratic Reform Committee.

Jatuporn said if the referendum finds that most people support Suthep's calls for an interim government to reform the country before the next election, the UDD would stop its campaigns.

But if the referendum finds that the people do not support Suthep's proposal, the PDRC must end its rallies, Jatuporn said.
