Thailand's political situation is now stable, Deputy Prime Minister in charge of security affairs Suthep Thaugsuban said on Friday.

Suthep made the statement ahead of pronouncing a verdict for the 76 billion baht (2.29 billion U.S. dollars) asset seizure case of ousted former Thai Premier Thaksin Shinawatra by the Supreme Court's Criminal Division for Holders of Political Positions on Friday afternoon.

Hence, the political situation is increasingly intense ahead of the verdict on whether or not to seize the ousted former Thai premier's frozen asset.

However, Suthep said there was no report of irregularity, while the Thai government has a contingency plan to deal with any political disturbance, Thai News Agency reported.

Suthep also said Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva is now working as usual amid tight security measures.
