Pheu Thai Party will kick off its campaign for the February 2 election at five spots in the capital and four other provinces today.
Pheu Thai leader Charupong Ruangsuwan said a campaign rally at Muang Thong Thani in Bangkok would start at 4pm in parallel with similar activities in Khon Kaen, Chiang Mai, Ubon Ratchthani and Nakhon Sawan.
Pre-election campaigns will continue until January 30, he said.
Sompong Amornwiwat, director of the Pheu Thai election centre, said his party would not campaign at Rajdamnoen Avenue or rally sites to avoid conflict and public disorder.
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra will concentrate more on national administration and would not have much involvement in the campaign, he said.
