National unity govt like taking 2 steps back

Democrat Party veteran Bhichai Rattakul has called for a national reconciliation government that would join the military regime with the Democrat, Pheu Thai, and Bhumijaithai parties.

However, politicians from the concerned parties have slammed the suggestion as an unwelcome anachronism.
