Coalition partners still support Pheu Thai: Charupong

Interior Minister and Pheu Thai Party leader Charupong Ruangsuwan said Sunday night that all coalition partners resolved to continue working with the Pheu Thai although opposition Democrat MPs have resigned en massed.

Charupong said the coalition parties would like to call on demonstrators to rally peacefully Monday and the coalition leaders would monitor the protest on the hourly basis.

Charupong said the leaders of the coalition partners supported Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's decision to uphold the Constitution. The coalition partners did not discuss House dissolution, he added.

He said the House dissolution would be the last option.

Banharn Silpa-archa, chief advisor the leader of Chart Thai Pattana Party, said he saw that the House could still work without the Democrat Party. He said the government should hold talk with protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban.
