Protesters urge 8 coalition partners to not switch sides


DEMONSTRATORS joining a rally called by the Labour Network for People’s Rights at Ratchaprasong intersection last evening (July 27) urged the eight parties in the Pheu Thai-led coalition to clarify if there are any conflicts and not switch sides, TV Channel 7 said.

The demonstrators also urged senators to listen to the people’s voice as they had to endure over nine years of rule by the current government.

By 6.30 p.m. the protesters had completed setting up a stage at this intersection with the leaders taking turns in giving speeches. Police surround the protest zone and helped facilitate the traffic flow.

The Move Forward, the No.1 largest elected party, had after failing to have its leader Pita Limjaroenrat voted for prime minister at two joint House/Senate meetings passed on the roles of the core of eight coalition partners to the Pheu Thai under de facto party boss/deposed prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
