Yingluck 'will be forced to stand down'

Suthep Thaugsuban, leader of the antigovernment protest, warned Friday that if Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra ignores the demand for her to step down, she will be forced by "people's power" to do so.

Speaking to the media at the Royal Turf Club before noon Friday, Suthep said that with a political vacuum following her departure, a politically neutral person would be selected to become the new prime minister. And a people's council would be set up to carry out reforms, Suthep said, adding that he expected this process to take 8 to 14 months.
