The Phalang Pracharat Party has showed no concern over an attempt to form a "pro-democracy bloc" coalition government led by the Pheu Thai Party.



"We are not worried about that," said party leader Uttama Savanayana on Wednesday.

Uttama declined to comment further but told media to table their questions at the party’s press conference this afternoon, where Phalang Pracharat is expected to announce its own move to form a ruling coalition.

Earlier this morning, leaders of six anti-junta parties led by the Thaksin-backed Pheu Thai signed a pact to jointly form a coalition government, claiming they had gathered a majority in the House of 255 seats from seven parties.

However, they did not mention the name of the 7th party.
