Samak renominated by Thai ruling party    
Thailand's ruling party on Thursday endorsed ousted leader Samak Sundaravej to return as prime minister despite misgivings by some of its coalition partners, intensifying the country's political deadlock.

Even some of his own party members said they would not support his bid to be re-elected in a vote in Parliament on Friday.

A two-hour meeting of Samak's People's Power Party ended with him being chosen as its prime ministerial candidate, said party spokesman Kuthep Saikrajang."A majority of the party members voted to reappoint (Samak) to be the prime minister as he is the leader of our party. So he is the best choice," Kuthep told reporters.

The decision incensed anti-government protesters who have occupied the prime minister's office compound, Government House, since Aug. 26 in a bid to unseat Samak and his administration. Protest organizers said they would not give up their protest until it is clear Samak or his allies cannot return to power.

Samak thanked his party and said he was "accepting the nomination in order to protect democracy in the country," according to another party spokesman, Suthin Klangsang.
