Suthep asks public to push Senate for interim PM

 BANGKOK, May 13--- Anti-government leader Suthep Thaugsuban on Tuesday has called for all parties to urge Senate speaker-elect Surachai Liengboonlertchai and senators to push for the interim prime minister and government as soon as possible.

People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) secretary-general Suthep announced the second PDRC statement in the afternoon at the Santi Maitree building in the compound of Government House together with other PDRC leaders Satit Wongnongtoey, Banjerd Singkaneti, Sombat Thamrongthanyawong, Jermsak Pinthong as well as the group's spokesman Akanat Promphan.

Mr Suthep claimed that currently there is no prime minister to govern the country, saying emphatically that the person who claims himself as acting premier has no legitimacy or authority to run the country.

Therefore, he asked all sides to urge Mr Surachai and the Senate to consider nominating a interim prime minister as soon as possible in order to find a way out of the country’s political deadlock and to revive the rapidly declining economy.

After making the announcement, the PDRC secretary-general was set to make merit at a protest site near the Makkhawan Rangsan Bridge before heading to the Parliament for following up the work of the Senate. (MCOT online news)
