Suthep: PDRC will hold mass rally for final round of fighting

 BANGKOK, April 5 -- The anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban has asked the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) nationwide to prepare themselves for a mass rally which would be the final round of fighting.  
Mr Suthep, secretary general of the PDRC today chaired a meeting of PDRC leaders from all over the country at its rally site in Lumpini Park.
He told the PDRC supporters after the meeting that the PDRC nationwide was prepared for the whistle blowers to start their move, the final round of protest which would be a non-stop rally lasting for at least 15 days.
He has asked the PDRC network to register healthy people for the rally as it would be a tough ordeal lasting days and nights without sleeping.  The demonstration would not end until they achieved the victory.
Mr Suthep told supporters to wait for the result of whether the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) would charge caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra for dereliction of duty over her involvement in the rice pledging scheme.
If she was indicted, the NACC would request that the Senate impeach her.
Another point of contention is the Constitutional Court's ruling to disqualify her for unconstitutionally transferring National Security Council chief Thawil Pliensri.
If the Constitutional Court rules against her, she and the entire caretaker cabinet would have to leave office.
Meanwhile, Mr Suthep said that the PDRC leaders have agreed to open all government offices starting Tuesday, except for Government House and the Interior Ministry.
However, caretaker ministers would not be allowed to enter their offices and the PDRC would put up a sign at the gates declaring officials agreed with the reform.
On Aksa Road in Bhuddhamonthon in Nakhon Pathom, the pro-government Red Shirt activists have held a major rally.
The United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) chairman Jatuporn Promphan has told the supporters that this rally was only a rehearsal as the real fight would be on April 18.
He said the UDD has firm standpoint that it was against any attempt to interfere by the independent organisations in order to change the Prime Minister.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
