Abhisit sets conditions for contesting election

Democrat leader Abhisit Vejjajiva has hinted that the party will take part in a new election if the Yingluck government accepts four proposals.

The proposals are derived from the results of a recent survey of protesters that was conducted in an attempt to find ways the warring parties can find a common ground.

The proposals are: implementing national reform, no coups, stop proceeding with the February 2 election and a neutral body must manage national reform and there must be a fresh national election.

"If the PM wants to safeguard democracy as she had said, she must accept the four wishes of the people," Abhisit said.

"If there is reform and a new election is accepted by all parties, the Democrat Party is ready to take part in the new election."
