PAD refutes all of PMs wordsSeptember 4th, 2008 - 1:18 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
People’s Alliance for Democracy leaders Piphop Thongchai (พิภพ ธงไชย) and Somsak Kosaisuk (สมศักดิ์ โกศัยสุข) responded to the Prime Minister’s special radio session this morning, saying that many of the PM’s facts and issues were untrue or misconstrued. The PAD expressed their opinion that the PM’s speech was only an appeal for sympathy from the public and then proceeded to refute and deny his entire speech. The group also said that with new issues arising, it will not assure that the government’s resignation will prompt the demonstration to disperse.
As for threatened power and water outages to be carried about by state enterprise unions, the PAD admitted that the ultimate severing of such services were in the hands of their operators and the PAD could only support the idea of outages. However, the PAD affirmed it would seek definite measures to proceed with its defiance of the government.
