All sides urged to cooperate for the sake of the country
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra Monday urged all sides in the political conflict to brush aside the conflicts for now and cooperate so that the country could survive all crises.
Yingluck said the country was not only facing a political crisis but also an economic crisis stemming from the global economic slump.
She said the government had to make preparations to cope with problems caused by the global economic crisis.
She said if all sides cooperate to create confidence, the country would be able to move on.
Yingluck said the government needed cooperation from all sectors and all sides should discuss what should benefit the country instead of talking only about political conflicts.
"If we talk only about the conflicts, the country will have no way out. We must get everything moving forward. I call on all sectors to be patient and help support the atmosphere of peace so that the country could move on," Yingluck said.
She added the people had already suffered a lot and the government wanted to see Thais be happy and enjoy a better quality of life."
Seen as part of the political crisis, the Constitution Court will review constitutionality of the charter amendments on July 5 and 6.
Yingluck said she would not pressure the court but she hoped the court would consider the case fairly based on facts.
She said her government had a policy to amend the charter and had announced the policy to parliament.
