PAD sets no rally plans for this weekNovember 3rd, 2008 - 1:08 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
The anti-government People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) does not set any rally plans for this week, revealing that it will focus on securing its rally site and members while criticizing recent events conducted by its opposition.
PAD coordinator Suriyasai Katasila (สุริยะใส กตะศิลา) stated on Sunday (November 2) that the PAD chose not to interfere with the “Truth Today” mobile political talk show on Saturday as it viewed the programme as a diversion from true political issues involving the government.
Mr Suriyasai also voiced the PAD’s opinion that the pro-government United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) is unjustified in seeking royal pardon for the deposed premier as Mr Thaksin intentionally committed his crimes.
Nonetheless, he said that the PAD this week will remain at the Government House without any set plans for activity as it will focus on security.
