In a bid to find ways to solve the ongoing political chaos, Samak government agreed on Thursday to conduct “public referendum,” Culture Minister Somsak Kietsuranond said Thursday. He quoted Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej as saying that the referendum is the best solution to the problem. … Earlier People Power Party’s MP Suthin Klangsaeng said earlier his party wanted the people to be the judge in choosing between the government and the PAD. Suthin suggested for a referendum to be held with three simple questions which the voters could answer by yes or no.
1. Should the government continue in office, resign, or dissolve the House for a snap election?
2. Should the PAD continue or end its protests?
3. Should the PAD’s proposal on new politics to revamp the electoral system be accepted?
