Former senator Ruangkrai Leekijwattana on Monday filed a petition with the Constitution Court seeking the dissolution of the Democrat Party and the banning of Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva and Surat Thani MP Suthep Thaugsuban from elections. 

In the petition, Mr Ruangkrai said Mr Abhivisit and Mr Suthep on Nov 7 went up on the stage at the Democracy Monument on Ratchadamnoen Avenue and made a speech calling for the people to form a people's court to consider cases against the government.

On Nov 8 Democrat spokesman Chavanont Intarakomalyasut made a similar call in a press statement at the party's headquarters.
