Jatuporn to propose referendum as way-out for political impasse

Red-shirt leader Jatuporn Prompan said he would propose during a meeting of involved parties Thursday that a national referendum should be held for ending political impasse.
Jatuporn, chairman of the United Front of Democracy against Dictatorship, said UDD leaders have reviewed their stand and believe that a referendum would be the best way-out.
The second meeting of all sides involved in the conflict would be held for the second time by Army Chief Prayuth Chan-ocha at the Peace and Order Maintaining Command at 2 pm Thursday.
Jatuporn said the UDD leaders saw that the election could be held right away so the public should be asked in a referendum whether they want to elect a new government before or after political reforms.
The red-shirt movement would respect the referendum’s results, he said.
