Pheu Thai Party MPs will meet to discuss the party's next move at an undisclosed place following the imposition of martial law, former Ubon Ratchathani Pheu Thai MP Somkid Chuakong said yesterday.
He said the declaration of martial law was nothing short of seizing state control. He said the party would like the Army chief to push for an election as a solution and implement reform later. The party is totally against the proposal to nominate a PM, under Article 7. He urged the military not to abuse its power and violate human rights. The red-shirt protesters near Aksa Road would not move away, he said.
Chalerm Yoobamrung, former director of the now-defunct Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (CAPO), will stay at home as the anti-riot police providing him security have left. Only five police officers and a defence volunteer are now stationed at the entrance to his residence.
