September 12th, 2008 - 10:57 am ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi  

Caretaker Premier Somchai Wongsawas (สมชาย วงศ์สวัสดิ์) stated that he was not made aware of member parties of the Coalition Government not joining in the Parliament vote for the new Prime Minister but stated that the matter would be in the hands of the parliament to handle. Mr. Somchai assured that the People Power Party would not interfere in the dealings of other parties as well as affirming the thought of dissolution never entered his mind, even in the event of an impasse as he is only the interim PM.

As for the proposal of a National Government, Mr. Somchai commented that the idea was the good intention of certain people but its practice would have to be reviewed against the Constitution.
