The Prime Minister also said that it is not realistic to govern the country based on demands from protesters, and urged protesters to resolve this dispute through dialogue under the rule of law.

The Premier asked all sides to take a step backwards to carefully think about the best course for the Kingdom, while underlining the importance of the three pillars of the Thai Society which are the principles that make Thailand unique: The nation, the religion and the monarchy.

The Prime Minister stressed that the voices of the protesters have been heard, resulting in the extraordinary parliamentary session which will likely take place on Oct 26 and 27th….

The PM also mentioned the possibility of lifting the special emergency decree soon, if the protests are peaceful, to help ease the tension and to show the sincerity of the government to the people.
