Pheu Thai to have party leader attend EC meeting

The Pheu Thai Party has decided to have party leader Charupong Ruangsuwan attend a meeting on Tuesday with other parties and the Election Commission (EC) to discuss the proposal on a new election.

Pheu Thai Party spokesman Prompong Nopparit said Thursday that Charupong and the director on party affairs Bhokin Bhalakula would be present on Pheu Thai's behalf to push its proposal to hold a new election in 60 days instead of 90 days as proposed by EC member Somchai Srisutthiyakorn.

The party says the 90-day timeframe is too long and its proposal to hold a poll in 60 days is backed by 53 other parties.
