Mr Somchai also said there would be no meeting with representatives of the two political parties when he met the media before heading off for lunch at 12.30pm Thursday.
The EC was expected to decide today whether it will carry on with the Feb 2 election or not now 28 constituencies in five southern provinces have no candidates after anti-government protesters blocked the registration venues.
The new House of Representatives must have a minimum of 95% of its 500 MPs present when it first convenes after a general election.
