Democrats today tell all about last year’s violence
The Democrat leader's promise came amid fresh Pheu Thai claims the rally was intended to derail the election process.
A party statement advised members, candidates and executives of Pheu Thai to stay away from Ratchaprasong tomorrow, warning they might be persecuted for actions that may be committed by others.
Mr. Abhisit said core members of the Democrat Party will reveal "truths" about the violent protest by the red-shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) in April and May last year.
They would tell some stories which had not been disclosed previously, Mr Abhisit said.
The party leader said the speeches would be constructive.
"We will reveal truths, some of which have never been disclosed before," he said.
"We will point out what problems are lying ahead of us. We will envisage what direction the country should take in the future after having overcome the difficulties of the last few years.
"It will not be our trump card because we still have 10 days to go," Mr Abhisit said.
The Democrat Party will set up a stage in the plaza in front of the CentralWorld mall at Ratchaprasong.
Speeches will be made by core party members including Mr. Abhisit, deputy party leader Suthep Thaugsuban, party advisory chairman Chuan Leekpai, and Korbsak Sabhavasu.
The opposition Pheu Thai Party today issued a statement advising its executive and party members not to show up at the Democrat Party rally at Ratchaprasong intersection tomorrow.
