The general election is the solution to the country’s political conflict and it allows people to choose their representatives and government, not for whitewashing anyone as alleged, Noppadon Pattama said on Saturday.
Mr Noppadon, a legal advisor to ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinnawatra, was responding to Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva’s remark at the election campaign in Ratchaburi yesterday that if Pheu Thai wins at the polls and becomes a government, there would be unrest in the country.
He was also responding to the remark by Deputy Prime Minister for security affairs Suthep Thaugsuban that Thaksin wants Pheu Thai to win the election so it can hold power to whitewash him.
Mr Noppadon said he did not want to make word war with Mr Abhisit and Mr Sthep on the allegations because he knows well what they both are thinking about the ex-premier.
“The Democrats had been beaten by Thaksin's party in all general elections in the past years. Only one time that the Democrat Party was not defeated was the election that it boycotted,” he said.
He called on Mr Suthep to think of the election in a positive way and respects the decision of the majority of voters. The Democrat Party should not try to form the next government if it does not win most votes at the coming polls, he added
