Thailand's Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva expressed his confidence again Monday that his party could form a coalition government of more than 260 MPs.

The Democrat secretary-general has affirmed that we now have more than 260 MPs, Abhisit said.

But he said it would be up to the caretaker government whether to dissolve the House or not.

Meanwhile, The Puea Thai party, one of Thailand's newest, set up recently to absorb members of parliament (MPs) from the court-dissolved former ruling People Power Party (PPP), will also petition for an extraordinary parliamentary session to elect a new prime minister after the Democrat party petitioned earlier.

Puea Thai MP for Lop Buri province Amnuay Klangpha on Monday morning said his party had gathered more than a third of all MPs, adding that the party had already finished drawing different political parties and factions together to set up the next government.

According to the MP, the Puea Thai party already had a person who would be nominated to the premier's post in mind but the name will be revealed at the parliamentary session.
