Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has ruled out an early election, following six days of protests aimed at removing her from office. She said that the situation in Thailand was not calm enough for polls.

She also said she would not authorise the use of force against protesters occupying government ministries. She was speaking after demonstrators forced their way into the army headquarters in Bangkok and held a demonstration there.

On Thursday, Yingluck called for an end to the demonstrations after surviving a no-confidence vote.  But protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban has rejected her appeal.

“We will not let them work anymore,” the former senior opposition lawmaker said in a speech late on Thursday.
