The Prime Minister and Interior Minister, Gen. Surayud Chulanont (สุรยุทธ์ จุลานนท์), says he has received the report on the bomb blast at the Election Administration Center of the People Power Party. He says police officers are currently investigating into the case, and maximum security measures have already been enforced.

Gen. Surayud also comments on the flood crisis in the southern border province of Narathiwat, saying he has assigned the Ministry of Interior and relevant agencies to provide prompt assistance to the troubled villagers. He says he will visit the flood-affected southerners while attending the opening of the Thai-Malaysian Bridge this Friday (December 18th).

The Prime Minister says the flood situation will not affect the general election as the main routes in the South are still commutable.
