Thai PM says ready to dissolve parliament
BANGKOK, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said Sunday that she was ready to resign or dissolve the parliament to end the ongoing political turmoil.
But an election has to be held within 60 days of the dissolution of the parliament, she said.
Yingluck added she did not want to see parties boycott the election and lead to a military coup, just as what happened in 2006.
If the anti-government protestors reject the offer, the political impasse will last even longer, Yingluck said.
