Abhisit confident of winning

Posted by arnon_k On June - 30 - 2011

The Democrat Party will certainly win the July 3 election and have the legitimacy to form the next government, Abhisit Vejjajiva said on Thursday.

Mr Abhisit denied the claim by Pheu Thai that the Democrat-led government had turned areas of trade with neighbouring countries into battlefields.

In fact, judging from cross-border trade figures, trade with neighbouring countries had considerably increased.

There had been problems with Cambodia but the problems were caused by previous governments under the People Power and Pheu Thai parties, Mr Abhisit said.

It was now time for the people to make an important decision – vote for Pheu Thai to get a government which is friendly to Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen and lose some territory, or for the Democrat Party that will protect the country’s sovereignty.

Mr Abhisit called for all concerned to look forward to the election, saying there had been no conditions which could lead to a coup.

During the past two weeks of campaigning, the Democrat Party had won more support, partly from the June 23 rally at the Ratchaprasong intersection, he said.

He called for all to accept the people’s decision in the election and believed the Democrat Party would come first and form the next government.
