Somchai: I will continue to work for the country

Bangkok Post:

PM: No resignation or parliamentary dissolution

(BangkokPost.com) – Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat said on national television at about 10pm Wednesday that he will not step down, citing that his administration was democratically elected by the majority of Thai people.

After arriving from the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit in Peru, Mr Somchai said he had no plans to dissolve the parliament, as the commitee for monitoring political developments, chaired by national army chief Anupong Paojinda, proposed.

The premier also demanded the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) demonstrators to leave Suvarnabhumi airport and Government House because foreigners, tourists and other parties suffered the consequences, not only the government.

He vowed that the government will give its utmost performance and called on the protesters to help restore normalcy in the country.

The special cabinet meeting on Thursday will discuss measures to deal with the political crisis, the prime minister said.

He also reminded state officials to strictly follow and abide by the laws and regulations.

More detail at the Nation:

“The protesters have weapons and break the laws by seizing the government offices at Don Muang airport and the Suvarnabhumi Airport. I consider them as destroyer of democratic system of the country,” he said.
