The leader of Thailand’s main opposition party has called for elections scheduled for July to be delayed by six months.

Abhisit Vejjajiva says the delay is needed to allow important political reforms to take effect. It comes as the Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra faces a court verdict next week which could see her barred from politics for five years.
