BANGKOK (Reuters) – Fugitive former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra met lawmakers from his Puea Thai Party in Hong Kong where he called for party unity ahead of an approaching general election, party members said yesterday. Many are watching to see how Puea Thai Party performs in a vote which the military government has promised to hold in November but which could be delayed. Prayuth Siripanich, a Puea Thai Party member, said ten lawmakers flew to Hong Kong on Saturday and returned yesterday. “Thaksin asked lawmakers to be united and not to break that unity,” Mr Prayuth said. “He asked that lawmakers meet their constituents because the election is fast approaching.”
