Thailand's acting prime minister has met with a group of senators to seek a solution to the country's ongoing political crisis, as anti-government protesters continue to pressure the cabinet to resign.

A participant said Niwattumrong Boonsongpaisan's government indicated today that it is willing to co-operate with the Senate but refused to step down because that might violate the constitution.

The senators sought the meeting after saying on Friday that a government with full authority should conduct political reforms, but stopping short of directly calling on the cabinet to resign.

The cabinet has operated in a caretaker capacity with limited power since the lower house was dissolved in December.

Anti-government protesters say they are making their final push to oust the government after six months of street demonstrations in which 28 people have died.
