PDRC should start election campaign now

Most likely the demands of the PDRC will not be fully met. To avoid the potential mayhem that the army chief has warned of, the most realistic option is to let the country move forward with a general election.

Returning power to the people is a normal process in democracy, which has never been deemed perfect as a political system anyway.

In the remaining month or so, the PDRC could take the opportunity to tell people about the possible consequences of the election and let them decide what the future of Thailand should be.
