Nipit: Abhisit makes sacrifice to try to get the country move on

Democrat Party deputy leader Nipit Intharasombat said Thursday that his party leader, Abhisit Vejjajiva, has already made a sacrifice to try to get the country out of the political deadlock by offering to take a political break.

Nipit said if the Democrat wins the next election, Abhisit will not get the post of prime minister or if the Democrat loses, Abhisit will not become the opposition leader because he will not contest the next election.

"This is not a last card but it's a sacrifice and a retreat for the country to move on," Nipit said.

He added that Abhisit is still the Democrat leader because he has not resigned from the party's position.
