The Democrat Party says it will attend a meeting on Tuesday with the Election Commission (EC) but will not run in the next election as long as the Pheu Thai Party cannot stop violence in the country.
Democrat leader Abhisit Vejjajiva and Chamni Sakdiset, his deputy, will join Tuesday's meeting, said party spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut on Saturday.
Pheu Thai will send party chief Charupong Ruangsuwan and legal adviser Bhokin Bhalakula to the meeting, said deputy party spokesman Jirayu Huangsap.
