Deposed prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra has thrown his support behind a reconciliation bill proposed by Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yubamrung, according to a Pheu Thai Party source.
Thaksin, widely seen as the party's de facto leader, talked to party MPs at a meeting via Skype Tuesday, the source said. Thaksin said he had discussed the reconciliation bill with Mr Chalerm and urged the deputy premier to press ahead with it, the source added.
"I want to come home. Tell the Democrat Party not to worry. If I come back, I don't want anything, I won't ask for any positions. [I would] let Prime Minister Yingluck [Shinawatra] continue to run the country," the source quoted Thaksin as saying.
