Thailand's general elections, due early next month, can be postponed in view of the ongoing political unrest following anti-government protests that began in November last year, the country's constitution court ruled Friday. Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra had called the elections for Feb 2. The court said the caretaker prime minister should discuss a new polling date with Election Commission chairman Supachai Somcharoen, the Bangkok Post reported. The Election Commission requested the ruling, arguing that it cannot hold safe and successful elections in the current political situation, after nearly three months of street demonstrations against the government.
