Thailand says protest-hit general election invalid

BANGKOK--Thailand's general election held last month was declared invalid Friday after disruption by opposition protesters, setting the scene for possible talks between warring political parties about new polls to end the deadlock.

While the ruling from the Constitutional Court further delays the formation of a new government, it also offers a possible exit from the political stalemate — if the opposition agrees to end its boycott of the ballot box.

The country's Election Commission said it planned to propose talks between political party leaders about a new election date.

But Yingluck's supporters fear she will be removed from office before another vote is held.
