Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva Saturday vowed to annul the controversial coal-fired power plant project in Krabi if his party wins the next election and becomes the coalition leader.

Giving a speech on the topic of politics and Thai economy management at King Prajadhipok’s institute, Abhisit said coal-fired power plants are no longer needed to provide energy security for the country.

He said the government should instead focus on alternative power developments.

“In a few days, the prime miniser will make a decision on  the coal-fired power plant project in Krabi. Let me put it straight. If you decide to build it, and if I become the government again and if I can, I’ll cancel it,” Abhisit said.

He said the government should instead considering building palm-oil power plant.
