Thailand anti-government group People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) on Tuesday vowed to continue rallying at Bangkok's two airports, and demanded the whole cabinet to step down after three ruling coalition parties were ordered to dissolve.
One PAD leader Somsak Kosaisuk on Tuesday asked supporters to continue rallying at Don Mueang domestic airport and Suvarnabhumi international airport, which they seized since Nov. 25, and said the entire Cabinet must go after the Constitution Court ruled earlier in the day to disband the ruling People Power Party (PPP), and another two coalition government parties -- Chart Thai and Matchima Thipataya on electoral fraud charges.
Somsak said the PAD would not allow the Cabinet to work in the caretaker capacity until the formation of the next government.
He said every minister must depart along with Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat.
The Constitution Court verdict also banned all executives of the three disbanded parties from politics in line with the 2007 Constitution, which indicates that 14 out of the 36 cabinet members in Somchai government will lose their posts, while 22 can stay on in the caretaker cabinet.
First Deputy Prime Minister Chaovarat Chanweerakul will become caretaker prime minister, said former PM's Office Ministers Sukhumpong Ngonkham on Tuesday.
