The anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) and the Election Commission (EC) have rejected the premier's overture to discuss a possible postponement of the Feb 2 election. 

Suranand Vejjajiva, secretary-general to the prime minister, said yesterday caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra planned to invite those for and against the Feb 2 election to discuss the EC's recommendation to defer the poll today.

Mr Suranand said invitees include the PDRC, the EC, political parties including the Democrat Party which boycotted the Feb 2 poll, the pro-government United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), representatives of the cabinet and private-sector organisations.
