Thailand’s red-shirt leaders say they are formulating their response to Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva’s road-map proposal to end weeks-long protests.
Mr Abhisit had given them a Monday deadline to respond to his plan, which includes November polls.
He describes his road-map as a non-negotiable path to national reconciliation, but red-shirt leaders say they doubt his sincerity.
Both the ruling elite and the reds are divided over how to end the protests.
Thousands of protesters remain in camps along major thoroughfares in the centre of Bangkok.
Two policeman were killed in the city over the weekend, bringing the protests’ toll to 29.
“We affirmed that we are ready to join the reconciliation process and we will offer our road-map,” said one of the protest leaders, Dr Weng Tojirakarn, on a rally stage in the reds’ vast encampment.
