Thailand’s stocks fell the most in a month, with the benchmark index posting the biggest drop worldwide, amid speculation that a bill granting amnesty for political offenses will spur protests against the government. 

The benchmark SET Index (SET) dropped 2.4% to 1,448.54 at the close in Bangkok, its biggest decline since Sept. 23 and the steepest drop among global equity gauges tracked by Bloomberg. Minor International Pcl (MINT), the operator of fast-food restaurant chains and hotel resorts, slumped 5.3%. Central Plaza Hotel Pcl fell 6.4%.
