Re: "Vote against me if you want me out: caretaker PM", Politics, January 6.

The PM is being duplicitous in her declaration. The Democrats are not standing for election, the PDRC is not a political party and other parties have volunteered to stand against Pheu Thai to avoid the single-candidate trap, so there is no one for whom anti-government protesters can vote. If they vote for the “supposed” opponents, it will give this flawed election credibility. If the EC would allow a “no vote” it would be a different matter, and the PM would be against that.
