The United front of Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) urged the military to stick to the regulation of the martial law.

Jatuporn Promphan, Chairman of the UDD, asked the Army Chief, General Prayuth Chan-ocha on Wednesday (21/05/14/) morning to remain true to rules of the martial law since many people who practice law of the country, including Thammasat University law scholars ‘ Khana Nitirat’ (Enlightened Jurist), have indicated clearly that the declared martial law is against the law.

According to Nitirat statement on May 20, the Article 188 of the 2007 Constitution stipulates that, “The King has the prerogative to declare and lift the martial law in accordance with the conditions and manner under the Martial Law Act” and Article 195 stipulates that, “All laws, Royal Proclamations and Royal Commands relating to State affairs must be countersigned by a Minister unless otherwise provided in this Constitution” while Article 2 of the Martial Law Act of 1914 stipulates that:

570517_33_zps334f7874

Jatuporn said Suthep’s is showing signs of a desperate person while calling for a nationwide rally against the installation of an unelected Prime Minister.

“Suthep looked like he was having a mentally breakdown during his latest speech, his eyes were full of paranoia”, said Jatuporn Prompan, chairman of the United front of Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD).

Suthep Thaugsuban, secretary general of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) said last week that since the Senate cannot come up with the names for an appoint PM, the PDRC will come up with it themselves and yesterday he pressures the 24 remaining ministers to resign by May 26. He also said that if the people do not come out in the number of over one million to support his campaign, he would stop the fight on May 27.

Chairman of the United front of Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) said the acting Senate Speaker should nominate the names of so called “neutral Prime Minister” for royal endorsement if he wants to neglect the fact that it is against the law.

Jatuporn Prompan, Chairman of the UDD, announced at Aksa yesterday that deputy Senate Speaker Surachai Liengboonlertchai should summit the names of potential appoint PM that were suggested by the traitor Suthep Thaugsuban, Secretary General of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), for royal endorsement if he wanted a fast ticket to jail.

Jatuporn said the attempt to nominate the list of potential “neutral PM” is clearly against the law while His Majesty the King has stated before that a PM that came from Article 7 of the constitution is undemocratic.

Co-leaders urged Red Shirsts to ignore PDRC provocation

1

Jatuporn Prompan Chairman of the United front of Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) said at the press conference yesterday that the current situation is edging closer to a state of anarchy while the latest movement of Suthep Thaugsuban’s PDRC is meant to pave way for an undemocratic regime to take control of the country.

The closing down of free TV stations (3,5,7,9,11) while threatening them to air PDRC press conference every time they have one is nothing less than an act of terrorism he said. The chairman of the UDD said Suthep’s actions have led him to a dead-end and it is time for UDD supporters to show this traitor that the Red Shirts will continue fight for the protection of the democratic system.

Pleum : Now that you’ve already stepped down as president of the UDD, I would like to welcome you to talk on the program as an academic.

Thida : I’m pleased to be here.

Pleum : Well, this time around, the Red shirts appear as if they’ll survive; and it seems to me the recent rally was quite energetic. However, the political groups in opposition to the Redshirts have tried to “woo” others into believing there weren’t over 50,000 people at the rally. Can you explain about this a bit?
