Red Shirts want Thai PM out of office in 30 days

Estimated read time 1 min read

Anti-government protesters want the Thai prime minister to step down from his job within 30 days, a proposal that comes as the so-called Red Shirts continue to occupy a major commercial district in Bangkok.

After holding unofficial talks with the Thai government this week, the Red Shirts said Friday that they want Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to leave his job and call new elections within a month’s time.

The Red Shirts claim the Abhisit-led government is illegitimate, as it seized power after court rulings ousted two pro-Thaksin Shinawatra governments. And the protesters have held their ground in the Thai capital for nearly six weeks as they push for what they want.
