BANGKOK, July 2 (Xinhua) -- The Thai government will lift the state of emergency in some areas after July 7, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said on Friday, the Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.
Overall, the situation has improved, however enforcement of the state of emergency in some other places will continue, Abhisit said.
Meanwhile, Abhisit said a house dissolution and new general election should take place after stability fully resumes.
Concerned authorities will assess the situation as the state of emergency will complete its three-month term of the enforcement on July 7.
Though the anti-government protests ended on May 19, the Thai government has still maintained its enforcement of the state of emergency in order to ensure security for the public.
The state of emergency has been imposed from April 7, 2010, in capital Bangkok and 23 provinces of Thailand's 76 provinces, empowering police and army to control the then anti-government protests.
The death toll from a series of violent clashes between the " red-shirt" protestors and troops during March 12 to May 19 stood at 88 as some 1,885 others were wounded.
