Medical workers march against govt

Thousands of medical workers started their anti-government demonstration from Public Health Ministry, heading to Ha Yeak Lat Prao intersection.

They demanded political reform before election and the establishment of neutral and acceptable mechanism to reform politic and prevent the dictating democracy.

The election on 2nd February should be postponed and the caretaker government led by Yingluck Shinawatra should get out and pave the way from the reformation, they demanded.

The group was led by former senior health officials and experts such as former Public Health Minister Dr Momgkol Na Songkla, who was designated during the military government in 2006, former Food and Drug Administration’s secretary general Dr Siriwat Thiptharadol, former Medical Emergency Institute of Thailand Dr Chatree Chareonchiwakul, Thailand Health Promotion Institute’s director Dr Hatai Chitanont, National Health Commission’s secretary general Dr Amphon Jindawattana, and former Public Health Ministry’s permanent secretary Dr Phaijit Warachit.
