BANGKOK, Jan 13 – Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva said today that today’s early morning shooting into the coffee shop at the party headquarters was a political intimidation.

He called on the government to urgently end the current political conflicts, saying the Election Commission (EC) has proposed delaying the general election but caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra claimed in her statement to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon that the government was not authorised to do that.
“If the election is postponed, (the government) should agree with society on which direction the country will move on. It’s not a matter of solving the problem merely to enable the government to stay on in power. It’s the government’s duty to find a resolution for the nation,” said Mr Abhisit.
After inspecting the damage at his party quarters, Mr Abhisit and some party executives took the BTS Skytrain from Aree station for Pathumwan – one of the six rally sites for the Bangkok shutdown — to meet the anti-government protesters.
The anti-government protesters from the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) have begun occupying major intersections and closed roads under the Bangkok Shutdown campaign to pressure caretaker PM to resign.  (MCOT online news)
