Two former Pheu Thai Party members called on the government to commit to a future election date.
The former MPs were responding to reports that key figures in the "five rivers", a term referring to the core organisations running the country, were showing reluctance to commit to an election schedule despite the Election Commission's assertion that the election will most likely be held next August.
The five rivers constitute the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), the National Legislative Assembly (NLA), the National Reform Steering Assembly (NRSA), the cabinet and the Constitution Drafting Committee (CDC).
