A meeting of Thailand's panel for monitoring national security Monday resolved to propose the weekly cabinet Tuesday to impose the Internal Security Act (ISA) on March 11-23 to ensure security during a mass anti-government rally.

The ISA imposition will take effect in capital Bangkok and the nearby provinces, officials at a press conference said.

The rally by the anti-government United front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) group will start from March 12 when the UDD or red-shirted people from the countryside will travel to Bangkok.

And, in the morning on March 14, the UDD protestors will stage their mass rally at Sanam Luang, the open field and public square in the center of Bangkok.

It is also reportedly said that a scattered rally is planned at 10 separated places in Bangkok by the UDD protestors during the mass rally.

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