Deputy Prime Minister Trairong Suwannakhiri on Tuesday voiced his support for the Abhisit government’s proposed dissolution of the House of Representatives in the next nine months as part of efforts to ease the ongoing political standoff, saying it is a proper timeframe because the spending budget for fiscal 2011 should by then already have parliamentary approval.

He said many investment projects under the Thai Khem Kang (strong Thailand) scheme had just got off the ground. It is expected the projects would be in a clear pipeline at that time.

That would mean that whatever government takes power to administer the country following the snap election, the projects could proceed as planned. Mr Trairong said that this would help boost private sector confidence.
