EC hopes security top brass will attend meeting

Election Commission secretary-general Puchong Nutrawong said he hoped the military and security agency chiefs, would personally attend the meeting next Tuesday instead of sending representatives, if they were not preoccupied with other engagements.

He said the EC wanted information about the political situation before staging the next election.

Democrats 'yet to decide'

Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva said his party had not discussed about running in the next election as they first want to make sure the polls would be free and fair.

He said the Democrats would be involved in a multi-party meeting on the new election if the meeting was hosted by the EC. The EC has sought a meeting with political parties on April 22.

Pheu Thai Party, which wants an election as soon as possible, said the proposed date for the meeting was too late.
