Thailand's Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva Friday said he has believed a majority of the anti- government group will constitutionally protest on March 14.

However, the prime minister has warned that they should not be incited by those who want violence to occur during the mass rally, Thai News Agency reported.

It is believed that only some people among the majority of the protestors want violence to incur in a bid to have change, which is not democratic, Abhisit said.

The anti-government United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) will start from March 12 as the UDD or red- shirted supporters from the countryside will begin from March 12 to travel to capital Bangkok.

On March 14, the UDD protestors will stage their massive rally at Sanam Luang, the open field and public square in the center of Bangkok.

Their political demand includes resignation of the coalition government and the House dissolution paving the way for a new general election.
