Democrats 'will boycott again'

Suthep vows fresh nullification battle

- +

The Democrats may boycott a fresh election even if the Feb 2 poll is invalidated by the Constitution Court Friday, according to party spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalayasut. 

He said Thursday caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, her government and Pheu Thai Party MPs must respect the court's ruling.

If the Constitution Court orders on Friday that the Feb 2 poll be voided, and if the government then rushes to hold a fresh election "too soon", the majority of people and the Democrats will find that unacceptable, Mr Chavanond said.
