Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva Tuesday called on caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and People's Democratic Reform Committee secretary general Suthep Thaugsuban to told a talk live on TV on national reforms.
The live broadcast would create confidence among the people would prevent spreading of rumours to attack each other.
Abhisit was speaking to the Senate committee on political development and public participation in politics. The committee invited Abhisit to express his opinion on political reform.
Abhisit admitted that certain reform could not be completed before an election because they would require charter amendments to implement them.
As a result, he said a public referendum should be held on whether the people want reforms so that politicians would have to commit themselves to carrying out reforms after the election.
