Suthep acting like coup leader: Nuttawut

Red-shirt leader and caretaker Deputy Commerce Minister Nuttawut Saikuar said caretaker PM Yingluck Shinawatra's decision to dissolve the House would return power to the people and not to People's Democratic Reform Committee secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban.

"Since the House was dissolved, Suthep has issued orders as if he was head of a coup. This never happens in democratic countries. What Suthep is doing is to lead the country to absolute dictatorship," he said.

Nuttawut said if Suthep announced the establishment of his regime, he would lead a mass revolt against it. "Our fight would be peaceful and not civil unrest," he said.
