    Thai PM (Hollywood, TH Actress) wishes for peace in 2014

    Thai caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Tuesday wished all Thais to make concerted efforts to bring peace and harmony back to the country in 2014.


    In a New Year's message posted on her Facebook account, Yingluck urged people with conflicting political opinions to work together to help the country find a way to peace.


    She also pledged to continue working with perseverance and restraint, and try her best to restore harmony for Thailand.


    The constituency-based candidate registration for the upcoming February 2 general election is proceeding across the country, yet not smoothly with blockage from anti-government protesters.


    Pressure from protesters has prompted local election officials in several provinces to resign.


    The constituency registration is expected to last till January 1 while the party-list candidate registration concluded earlier with 45 political parties having their lists submitted.


    The anti-government street rally in the capital is taking a pause during the New Year holiday season that runs through January 1, and is expected to come back even stronger after the holiday, according to protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban.
