DEPUTY Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan said this morning (Nov. 6) that demonstrators could go ahead with their big rally on Sunday November 8 provided they don’t break the law while officers are already duty-bound to take care of the security of key government offices such as the Government House, INN News reported.
Regarding progress in negotiating and holding talks on reconciliation with the demonstrators Gen. Prawit said this is something Parliament President Chuan Leekpai is taking care of while he would rather not say whether the result will be positive or not because this is a parliamentary action.
The deputy prime minister emphasised that all civil servants have to stay neutral in the upcoming local elections because the law says politicians must not interfere with this process.
Questioned about whether Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha sounded as if he was discouraged during a speech to Class 63 students of the National Defence College of Thailand, Prawit said he did not know because Gen. Prayut did not turn to him for encouragement and only talked to him about work.
