PDRC leader submits petition to Senate

Rally leader Suthep Thaugsuban on Friday submitted a petition to the Senate, asking it to help find a solution to the country's ongoing political stalemate.

Deputy Senate Speaker Surachai Liengboonlertchai received the petition from Suthep in a reception room inside the Parliament.

The Senate has yet to appoint a speaker.

Suthep was welcomed to the Parliament after marching from the Government House. He is leading anti-government protesters to many spots in Bangkok in what he calls "the final battle" against the Thaksin regime.

Surachai was heard saying in a live broadcast of the meeting with Suthep that he would talk to all parties in a bid to find an acceptable resolution to the political problems.

He also asked Suthep and his supporters not to resort to violence and illegal methods so that their demands could be met.
