It was so easy to predict like 2+2 = 4…
After the announcement of the “Frankenstein coalition” (Democrat Party + defectors of the previous coalition)… the pro-Thaksin supporters are very upset and denounce the “coup in disguise” !
So ready for the next round ? We had the protests of the “Yellows” (PAD), we might soon have the protests of the “Reds” … Play it again, Sam. 😉
The pro-Thaksin Democratic Alliance Against Dictatorship Sunday alleged that the formation of the Democrat-led coalition was a “coup in disguise” because it was arranged by the military.
DAAD leaders, who are hosts of the Truth Today programme on NBT, vowed to expose alleged military interference in politics during the planned mobile Truth Today gathering at the National Stadium on Saturday (Dec 13).
The Truth Today hosts – Veera Musigapong, Jatuporn Promphan and Natthawut Saikua – held a press conference to attack the military and the Democrat Party.
Veera said he was informed that leading members of certain political parties were called to a meeting at the house of a senior military officer Saturday night and they were told to support the Democrat as the next coalition leader.
Veera said the general told the parties’ representatives that he received an order from someone.
“So, we, in the name of red-shirted people, would like to call this as a coup in disguise,” Veera said. (Nation)
Anyway, the political circus is not over. And we have to wait for the election of the Prime Minister… And the Democrat Party wants obviously to go very fast (before the surprise effect could vanish…).
The Democrat Party is gathering names of at least one third of all MPs in the House of Representatives to submit to the House Speaker to petition his opening of an extraordinary session of Parliament to elect new prime minister on Monday. (TNA)
