Thailand's Parliament could cancel its scheduled voting on premier on Friday as some coalition parties Friday morning made a last-minute decision on not attending the voting.

The Chart Thai Party and the Puea Pandin Party, the second and third biggest parties in the six-party coalition, announced not to attend the voting after holding an urgent meeting on Friday morning.

During a joint conference on Thursday, all the other five parties in the coalition had said they will continue supporting the People Power Party's (PPP) nominee to contest the PM post. However, the sudden absence of the Chart Thai Party and the Puea Pandin Party made the voting session fall into deadlock.

PPP's spokesman Kuthep Saikrajan commented the change of the other coalition parties as "important political incident" during aphone interview of the state-run NTV television. He said the PPP has informed other parties that it will nominee Samak Sundaravej, the former prime minister who was forced to step down by a court ruling on Monday.

"I cannot understand. If they have some proposals, they could express under the parliament frame, instead of boycotting the session," said Kuthep.
