Thailand’s Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on December 8 said she is ready to step down or dissolve the House of Representatives only if it brings back peace and order to the country.

Yingluck stressed in her speech that the dissolution of parliament was an option but a general election must take place within 60 days after that and protestors must accept the election result.

If her resignation or the dissolution of parliament could really end the political crisis, she would be willing to do so, she added.

As for the idea of the “Council of the People” proposed by protest leader Suthep Thuagsuban, the PM said no provision in the constitution allowed her to do so and cast doubt on whether such a council was democratic.

A cabinet set up without general elections will have bad effect on Thailand’s future reputation and stability, she warned.

The political crises in Thailand have eased in recent days for celebrations of the 86th birth anniversary of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

However, protest leader Suthep on December 6 called on the whole country to take part in a demonstration on December 9, which he said “the last round of the fight with the government”.

The country’s armed force and police are ready to deal with the decisive demonstration, and said they will try best not to have any fatality.

Statistic shows that the month long demonstrations in Thailand have killed five people and more than 200 others were injured.-VNA
