30+ hours...Countdown to House dissolution
Despite speculation to the contrary, Premier Abhisit Vejjajiva insisted today that the House will be dissolved in accordance with his earlier pledges: Within the first week of this month.
That means he is due to submit the draft of the law to dissolve parliament to call a new election to His Majesty the King tomorrow. The PM is due to fly to Jakarta to take part in the Asean Summit May 7-8. The time frame is therefore more or less fixed: The House will most probably be dissolved tomorrow or over the weekend. Election date is tentatively scheduled for either June 26 or July 4 (both falling on Sunday).
Are you ready?
