Thai Prime Minister Threatens Snap Election.

According to Reuters: Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra may dissolve parliament and call a snap election if his opponents and critics increase pressure on him to resign, his spokesperson said on Monday Feb, 20, 2006.

Government spokesperson Surapong Suebwonglee told Channel 3 television Thaksin would not yield to mounting calls to quit and had told a Sunday cabinet meeting that dissolving parliament could be the way out of the political crisis. "The prime minister said he would certainly not resign. But if he was put into a situation that he had to make any decision, he would dissolve parliament," Surapong said.
