Thailand talks fail to set new election date

Anti-government protesters briefly delayed a meeting between Thailand’s Election Commission and politicians to discuss a new election date.

February’s poll was annulled by the Constitutional Court.

But the political deadlock continues with no firm date decided at the talks which the main opposition Democrat Party did not attend.

Separately, a Thai court will decide this week whether to give embattled Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra more time to defend herself against charges of abuse of power – accusations that could bring her down – or whether to move swiftly to a verdict.
