Thai PM says House of Representatives to be dissolved


BANGKOK: Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Monday announced the dissolution of the House of Representatives which is now awaiting royal approval.

In a televised speech, Yingluck said the date of a general election will be decided as soon as possible.

The House is dissolved to return the power to the people at a critical moment, she said, adding that she hoped all parties would attend the coming election and the government will stay in power until then.

Since early Monday morning, anti-government protesters have been gathering at different sites to march to the Government House in a final attempt to topple the government as protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban has reportedly said the dissolution of the House is not the goal of protesters. PNA
