Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam has rejected speculation about a dissolution of the House and early general election.

Mr Wissanu told reporters on Friday he had heard no talk of plans for the dissolution of the House of Representatives.  

Asked whether Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha had raised the issue during a recent cabinet meeting, Mr Wissanu replied, “No.” 

“If there was (a House dissolution), he would not talk about it,’’ the deputy prime minister said 

Mr Wissanu declined to comment on reports that three government coalition parties – Bhumjaithai, Democrats and Chartthaipattana – plan to propose amendments to the constitution section by section. 

During the meeting with Gen Prayut at Government House on Thursday morning, discussion centred on the executive decree allowing the government to borrow 500 billion baht, which was later passed by the House, he said.
