BANGKOK, May 5 (TNA) –The anti-government protesters are awaiting a clear statement of position from the government before they make their decision to end their protest in the capital, Nattawut Saikua, a top protest leader of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) said Wednesday.
Another top UDD leader, Weng Tojirakan, earlier said the Red Shirts will hold closed-door talks with the government before the ongoing demonstration against the government ends. However, Mr Nattawut said the UDD has yet to be contacted by the government.
Mr Natthawut’s remarks were made two days after Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva announced his five-point national reconciliation plan aimed at ending political stalemate which has impacted the national economy as well as private businesses, especially in Bangkok’s Ratchaprasong and Silom-Saladaeng districts.
Comments made by the ruling Democrat Party are inconsistent regarding the proposed plan. The problem among the Democrats is not about the House dissolution, but rather on amending the Constitution, he said.
