Party spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut said members led by party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva and his deputy Apirak Kosayodhin would meet members of Transparency Thailand, an anti-graft foundation chaired by former prime minister Anand Panyarachun, on Thursday to hold talks on the fight against corruption.
The Democrats would meet members of the Thai Chamber of Commerce the following day to discuss the same issue.
“On Jan 7, the party will hold a press conference at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) to disseminate information obtained from the two-day talks and unveil an initial blueprint against corruption and for national reform,” Mr Chavanond said.
The Democrat Party has decided to boycott the Feb 2 general election. Party members had been instructed not to join protests to hinder the election process, he added, but to gather evidence that shows the caretaker government’s misuse of state power to intervene in the poll, which violates election law.
