Chart Thai party suggests referendum to resolve political problems

September 4th, 2008 - 1:22 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi  

Minister of Agriculture and Cooperatives and Deputy Leader of Chart Thai party, Somsak Prissanananthakul (สมศักดิ์ ปริศนานันทกุล), says the party will request Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej to arrange a referendum to ask people whether they want the government to remain in office.

Mr Somsak says the referendum is a constitutional method to resolve the country’s political problems and it is the idea of the Chart Thai party, not the coalition.

The minister says he cannot tell whether the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) will agree with the referendum but he believes that the referendum will not cause division in the society.
