|By:, SA News Editor

On watch this week are Thai stocks (THD, TF, TTF) as Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has dissolved Parliament amid escalating political tensions.

Yingluck says there will now be "new elections according to the democratic system."

The move comes as protesters are set to march on the prime minister's office Monday.

Last week ended quietly as protesters and administration supporters paused to observe the king's birthday.
