BANGKOK, Sept 8 -- Leading politicians from various parties reconvened on Monday in sustained bid to resolve the prolonged political crisis surrounding Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej but no concrete agreement was reached.

They have neither called on the premier to step down nor asked him to dissolve the House of Representatives.

The meeting at Parliament between the leaders of parties across the political spectrum on both sides of the aisle was joined by House Speaker Chai Chidchob and Senate Speaker Prasopsuk Boondej but apparently as yet has produced no way out to end the crisis which led to the seizure and occupation of Government

House by anti-government protesters organised by the People’s Alliance for Democracy. The gathered political figures agreed to assign Deputy Prime Minister and People Power Party secretary general Surapong Suebwonglee to meet with Mr. Samak and to inform him of their grave concerns over the unyielding situation.

By no means had the top politicians asked Mr. Samak to resign or dissolve the House of Representatives to put an end to the crisis.

Details of the talks between the leading politicians and the content of the messages which Mr. Surapong was committed to relay to the premier were not disclosed, however. Attending the fruitless talk at Parliament Monday were Opposition/Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva, Ruam Jai Thai Chart Pattana Party leader Gen Chettha Thanajaro, Pracharaj Party leader Sanoh Thienthong, Chart Thai Party advisory chief Maj-Gen Sanan Khachornprasart, deputy Puea Pandin Party leader Mun Patthanothai and deputy Matchimathipataya Party leader Pol. Lt-Col. Banyin Tangphakorn, apart from Mr. Chai, Mr. Prasopsuk and Mr. Surapong.

The House speaker assured that none had pressed for Mr. Samak either to step down or dissolve the House of Representatives because such approaches might not even help end up the crisis raised by the anti-government protesters. The Senate speaker said negotiations among members of the legislative branch would be continued on in bid to find a peaceful solution to the prolonged crisis though the PAD had refused to sit down and talk with them.
