Leaders of Thailand’s opposition United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), also known as the “Red Shirts”, have softened their stance and proposed a new deadline to the government.
UDD leader Veera Musikhapong said the Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva’s Government must dissolve the House in 30 days, and new elections be held 60 days after that. This should give the government 90 days to prepare.
Their previous stance was that the government must dissolve the House in 15 days.
The compromise offer came after the Red Shirt leaders allowed a group of foreign diplomats to observe their rally base at Ratchaprasong intersection in Bangkok on Friday.
