BANGKOK, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- Thailand's Election Commission (EC) has offered to act as a mediator between the caretaker government and anti-government protesters, Bangkok Post reported Thursday.
Both the government and the People's Democratic Reform Committee need to sit down to talk, EC chairman Supachai Somcharoen was quoted as saying.
The EC is not part of the current political conflict and is willing to mediate talks, Supachai said, adding dialogue remains the best way to solve the conflict.
By late April when re-runs will be held for polling stations blocked by protesters during the Jan. 26 advancing voting and Feb. 2 general election, the situation in the country should have improved, he said.
