United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has called on all sides in Thailand to join hands to seek a solution through constructive dialogue, after Yingluck Shinawatra was dismissed from her position as caretaker Prime Minister on May 7.

Speaking at a press conference on the same day, UN spokesperson Vannina Maestracci said the secretary general will continue to follow the situation in Thailand closely, with the hope that all sides will exercise utmost restraint and show full respect for democratic principles and judicial regulations.

Meanwhile, the US has also urged all sides in Thailand to refrain from violence, and resolve political tensions in a peaceful and democratic manner so that the Thai people can choose appropriate political leaders.

On May 8, Thai anti-government protesters who have massed on Bangkok 's streets during the last six months said they will appoint a new government.

The announcement comes as the ailing ruling party expressed fears a new cabinet -- appointed to bolster its authority after Yingluck's dismissal - could also be hit by a legal ruling.

Anti-government protest leaders have vowed a "final fight" on May 9, without giving details of their plans, while Yingluck’s supporters also stated that they will hold a march on May 10.

Thailand ’s Constitutional Court on May 7 ruled that Yingluck Shinawatra has been stripped of her position as caretaker Prime Minister after being found guilty of abusing her power by illegally sanctioning the removal of a security chief in 2011.

Nine other caretaker cabinet members have also been removed from office for their involvement in dropping Security Council chief Thawil Pliensri from his position.-VNA
