A major reform of the Democrat Party, to revamp its internal structure, attract new supporters and position the party as a viable alternative to the current government will be ready in three months, ahead of an expected snap election, party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva said on Thursday. 

He said the reforms would position the Democrats to serve either as a strong opposition or as the core of a future government, whatever the political situation and regardless of the current conflict.

Mr Abhisit told a press conference on Thursday this was agreed on at a meeting of the party's executive committee on Monday.
