BANGKOK, June 11 -- Thai Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam brushed aside speculation that Prime Minister Prayuth Chan o-cha will dissolve the House of Representatives and call for an early general election.
Wissanu said he had heard no talk of plans for the dissolution of the House, Bangkok Post reported.
The Prayuth-led government reached the mid-point of their four-year-term in March this year.
The speculation of earlier dissolution of the House is rife after Prayuth on Tuesday told the cabinet that “the government only had one year left in office” and they should hurry up to implement projects to benefit the people.
His remark was later interpreted as the government’s readiness to dissolve the House.
Yesterday, Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan also dismissed the speculation of dissolution of the House.
However, local media reported that conflicts in the government’s coalition – PPRP and its three major partners, as well as Bhumjaithai, Democrat, and Chat Thai Phatthana parties – could prompt an earlier dissolution of the House.
