The Pheu Thai Party's loss in Sunday's Don Muang by-election is unlikely to force the government to call a snap election, Democrat deputy leader Korn Chatikavanij says. 

Mr Korn said the Yingluck Shinawatra administration is short of accomplishments to dissolve the House and call an election. Virtually every core ministry faces policy flops, he said.
