The anti-government United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) group announced Wednesday evening a plan to scatter their rally in capital Bangkok on Saturday, Thailand's Channel 9 Television reported.

The planned-scattering rally on was announced at 18:44 p.m.(11: 44 GMT) by two UDD core leaders: Nattawut Saikua and Veera Musigkapong, Channel 9 TV reported.

The UDD or red-shirted protesters on March 12 traveled from the countryside to stage the mass rally in Bangkok and their mass rally has been continuing.

The red-shirt people are demanding a House dissolution and holding a fresh general election.

The Internal Security Act (ISA) has been enforced by the Thai government in eight provinces during March 11-23 to ensure security during the rally.

The ISA imposition has taken effect in the whole area of capital Bangkok and Nonthaburi, which is next to Bangkok.

Also, the ISA law has been enforced in some 21 districts of six other provinces nearby Bangkok, including Pathum Thani, Samut Prakan, Samut Sakhon, Chachoengsao, Nakhon Pathom, and Ayutthaya.
