font size    

Former ruling Thai Rak Thai Party's secretary-general Suwat Liptapanlop, accompanying with a group of about 30 party members, on Friday decided to resign from the membership of the party, which is founded by the ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

"I've discussed about this with other leading figures, including Phinij Jarusombat, Suwit Khunkitti and Preecha Laohapongchana," Suwat, who was also a deputy prime minister during Thaksin's Cabinet, was quoted by the Bangkok Post's website as saying on Friday, adding "many former MPs support our decision. "

He said the Sept. 19 coup last year caused confusion among party members but "we try to shore up until now that there are people taking care of the party."

He said the resignation came after he had analyzed the political situations in the country. He said he believed the move would help ease political tension, including the undercurrents problems and the division in the society.

Suwat vowed to help restoring unity in political arena for now, said the report.
