If the anti-government red-shirted people rally on Sept. 19 is prolonged, the government will seek an approval from the cabinet for the enforcement of the Internal Security Act (ISA), Thailand's Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban said on Wednesday.

After canceling an mass anti-government rally on Aug. 30, the United front of Democracy against Dictatorship's (UDD) core leader Jatuporn Promphan said the UDD group will announce if there will be the rally on Sept. 5, Thai News Agency reported.

Jatuporn, however, said the rally will be definitely held on Sept. 19.

The 19th of this month will mark the third anniversary of 2006 military coup that ousted ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra, who has been perceived as the real leader of red shirts.

When asked what the government will do if the rally is prolonged, Suthep said "I can't answer that. But if I have a say, I'll announce the ISA enforcement and will deploy security forces from both soldiers and police to ensure the rule of law," The Nation newspaper's website reported.
