Thai anti-government protesters on March 24 restored their demonstrations on the streets of the capital city Bangkok to mobilise people to join a mass rally planned for March 29.

Led by Secretary General of the People's Democratic Reform Committee Suthep Thaugsuban, protesters walked about 5 km along the main streets to Silom trade centre.

Suthep Thaugsuban called on people to join the rally that’s purpose is to overthrow caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

The upcoming rally is to call for national reform before any new election, Suthep said on March 21 after the Constitutional Court nullified the February 2 general election.

Meanwhile, the pro-government "red shirts” are also planning their own mass rally on April 5, but have yet to announce the venue.

Also on March 24, members of the Election Commission (EC) met to discuss preparations for a new general election.

At the same time, political parties, including the ruling Pheu Thai, also held meetings to prepare for a new poll.

According to EC Chaiman Supachai Somcharoen, it will take at least three months to organise a new ballot after a royal decree is issued.

Earlier on March 21, the Thai Constitutional Court ruled that the February 2 election was invalid, which was believed to have deepened the political deadlock in Thailand.

According to the court’s spokesperson, the election failed to be held on a single day across the nation, which violated the Constitution.

However, both the Democratic Party and protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban insisted on carrying out reforms before any election, saying protesters will try to make any new election void too.-VNA
