T V - September 4, 2008; Thai Prime Minister To Go To People For Decision

The embattled prime minister has again rejected calls to quit and announced plans to hold a national referendum to defuse the crisis.

The referendum could take place by early October if the Senate quickly endorses a bill to organize the vote.

It comes two days after a state of emergency was declared banning gatherings of more than five people.

But the thousands of protesters camped out at Government House in Bangkok show no sign of moving on.
