New Delhi: India on Monday supported Thailand government`s move to hold fresh elections after facing protests for past several weeks, saying it favours all measures to uphold the rule of law and resolve political differences through democratic processes.

"We have taken note of recent developments in Thailand, our close friend, where fresh elections have been announced.

"We support all measures to uphold the rule of law, resolve political differences peacefully through dialogue and consultations within the constitutional framework and democratic processes of Thailand and to restore normalcy," spokesperson in the External Affairs Ministry said here.
Mass demonstrations have rocked Thailand over the past several days in an attempt to overthrow Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra`s government following which she has announced the dissolution of the country`s parliament.

Yingluck says she will remain as interim prime minister till the election, which an Election Commission official says is likely to be held on February 2.
