53 parties back early election

Dems snub key meet to decide poll's fate

- +

Fifty-three political parties have joined a push for a fresh general election to be held as early as May. 

The agreement was reached at a meeting at the Police Academy in Nakhon Pathom's Sam Phran district yesterday to discuss plans for the upcoming poll. The Democrat Party, which boycotted the nullified Feb 2 poll, did not join the meeting.
