Thai MPs still calling for resignation of PM

Thai Senators and MPs still calling for resignation of PM

After the Parliamnt's upper and lower house met today to discuss a remedy to the ongoing political and social situation of the nation, it was found that many of the Senators and MPs still supported the notion of the Prime Minister reconsidering his role or resigning from his post to dissolve the situation. Bangkok Governor Rossana Tohsritrakul (รสนา โตสิตระกูล), who supported the notion, stated that the presence of Senators in the People's Alliance for Democracy rally was to find information about the gatherings and not was not a sign of support, the senators she stated also took the time to commend police and security officials. Miss Rossana said that she does not want to see the nations' citizens divided over political matters and also called for the govenrment to investigate the use of tear gas against the rally.

Democrat MP Alongkorn Polbutr (อลงกรณ์ พลบุตร) echoed Miss Rossana's sentiments asking that the PM not be too attached to his position and act in the best interests of the nation. The MP put out 6 requests to the premier, the first being that he resign, the second was for the coalition government to withdraw and a new government be erected, third to have a national government established to solve the country's problems, fourth to dissolve the parliament and hold new elections, fifth to realize the dangers of sustaining the current government and sixth to accept the possibilty of revolution and the Prime Minister position's connection to the security and stability of the nation and its economy.
