The Democrat Party on Monday resolved to field Tankhun Jitt-itsara as its candidate in the June 16 by-election in Bangkok's Constituency 12 (Don Muang), party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva said. 

Mr Abhisit announced Mr Tankhun's candidacy after a meeting of the party's executive committee.

The Pheu Thai Party is expected to decide on its candidate on Tuesday. The by-election was called after the party's local MP Karun Hosakul was disqualified and banned.
