Chaturon slams Abhisit proposal

- +

Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva's proposal for national reform is dictatorial, according to Chaturon Chaisaeng, a senior member of the governing Pheu Thai Party. 

What Mr Abhisit proposed is what anti-government protesters, some academics and people who don't believe in elections have been calling for all along — to create a political vacuum so a "neutral" prime minister can step in, the caretaker education minister said in a TV interview shortly after Mr Abhisit outlined his proposal in detail on Saturday.

"The difference is the method. Mr Abhisit, who is a party to the conflict, changed his role to listening to the opinions of some groups. He then came up with this proposal as if he were a middleman when in fact he's part of the problem," said Mr Chaturon.
