The People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) is ready to end the protests if the caretaker government resigns from its post and establishes an interim government to implement national reform, according to core PDRC coleader Thaworn Senneam.
Thaworn is the first PDRC leader to confirm recent media reports that doors have been opened for talks to be held between representatives of the two sides in the political dispute.
At least five people have reportedly joined in these talks, including a senior figure, a retired Army general, PDRC leader Suthep Thaugsuban’s brotherinlaw Niphon Promphan, former deputy prime minister Wissanu Kruangam (as mediator) and expremier Thaksin Shinawatra’s close aide Wattana Muangsuk.
