Thailand's Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej insisted through the Radio of Thailand on Thursday morning that he will not resign although the anti-government People 's Alliance for Democracy pressed him by occupying the Government House.

"Who said I will resign? How could I resign? I cannot resign," Samak said.

Samak said he will stay in office to protect the country's democracy.

He said "the country needs a leader, and the world is watching us."

Earlier, some media reports featured reports that Samak would step down to meet a demand from the 102-day street protest in Bangkok.

The prime minister said that events would eventually become smooth "in order to protect democracy."
