The latest pro-election weekend protests situation involves activists demanding that an election be held this year after four years of martial law/military rule.

As easily predicted long ago, the showdown between protesters and the government is slowly but steadily continuing to develop.

Based on recent Thai history, a happy ending is not expected.

Activists threaten march to Government House

Quote:
PRO-ELECTION activists yesterday threatened to march to Government House on the fourth anniversary of the 2014 coup later this month if the ruling junta failed to respond to their call for an election in November.

The group stood firm on its stance that the next election must be held this year, as promised earlier by Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha, its leader Rangsiman Rome said during a demonstration at Thammasat University’s Tha Prachan campus. Before the election, the junta – the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) – must change its role as an administering government to that of a caretaker only to facilitate the holding of an election, the activist said. And lastly, the Army should stop supporting the NCPO’s political rule, he added.

The protest yesterday was the sixth in a series against the coup-installed regime, calling for a general election which was last held in the country in 2011.
