A joint house meeting would be held to consider the suggestions by the Committee for National Reconciliation, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva was cited by the National News Bureau of Thailand (NNT) as saying on September 8.

The meeting is expected to be a stage for several groups to share views, the PM said, adding that the parliamentary session would take place on September 16.
