Thai government wants end to protests but promises no crackdown
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has called an election for February 2 in the hope of cementing her hold on power in the face of more than two months of protests trying to shove her from office. He also heads the government's crisis committee, the Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (CAPO). He said CAPO would talk with protest leaders to ask them to stop occupying government offices. The ruling was sought by the Election Commission, which argues that the country is too unstable at the moment to hold a vote and that it would anyway result in too few legitimately elected MPs to form a parliamentary quorum.
