PDRC: Election delay pointless

- +

The Election Commission's proposal for the government to issue a royal decree to postpone the election from Feb 2 to May 4 is pointless as the only goal of the People's Democratic Reform Committee is for the caretaker prime minister and government to resign to make way for reform, PDRC core member Sathit Wongnongtoey said on Sunday. 

Speaking from the main anti-government rally stage at Ratchadamnoen, Mr Sathit said in the PDRC's view the EC's proposal for the government to postpone the election to May 4 is pointless.

Even if the election is postponed, the government would still be in a caretaking positition. There would still be no change to the election rules to ensure justice, he said.
