Thailand's Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said on Sunday that new elections can be considered only after violence and protests by anti-government activists end completely, after two months of turmoil left at least 85 people dead and deeply divided the country.

"It is now entirely up to me to see when is the most appropriate time to hold the election," Vejjajiva said in his weekly television talk show.
