Thailand's Caretaker Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said Saturday that the election had already begun and could not be undone.
Thaksin spoke this when visting the Bangkok Motorshow with his son, Panthongtae Shinawtra, Industry Minister Suriya Jungrungreangkit, and other ministers, according to the Thai News Agency.
"The election has already taken place so it has to go on," Thaksin said.
