The election should be delayed as the current atmosphere is not conducive and people have doubts about the government's use of power, Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva said on Wednesday.

The legitimacy of the election is not about whether the Democrats will run in the election but whether the people will boycott the election," he said.

People want national reform of several different aspects, not just the election, he added. He said Yingluck should quickly consult with the Election Commission and decide to postpone the February 2 election. There must be legal solutions that allows such a postponement.
