A government minister says Thailand's Cabinet has agreed to hold a referendum on how to deal with the country's political crisis.
Culture Minister Somsak Kietsuranond says no date has been set for holding the public referendum.
He says the exact topic of the referendum remains unclear but "essentially" it will ask the people a range of questions. They include whether the government should resign, whether it should dissolve the Parliament and what they think about the continuing protests against the government.
