Thailand's former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said on Monday that the only way out of Thailand's current political crisis is to dissolve parliament and hold a snap election, Reuters reported.

"The political crisis must be resolved by political means and the only way is for Abhisit to dissolve parliament and call a snap election," Thaksin said.
