Thai caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra leaves a cabinet meeting after deciding to go forward with the general elections on January 28, 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand. The government met today to push forward with the February 2nd general elections. The advance polling in the capital city was blocked by the anti-government protesters on Sunday. Bangkok Shutdown has been in effect for over two weeks as the anti-government protesters continue to block major intersections.
