The "red-shirts" Wednesday pulled down their stage at the Phan Fah Bridge at 15:05 p.m. on Wednesday and are now gradually shifting to reinforce other "red-shirts" at the Rathchaprasong Intersection, Thai News Agency reported.

"Red-shirted" core leader Jatuporn Prompan said that with only one main rally site, improvement is expected for security management and commutation, and a planned rally.

It is expected the shift from the Phan Fah Bridge to the Rathchaprasong Intersection will finish by midnight of Wednesday, Metropolitan Police Deputy Chief Maj-General Phanu Kerdlapphol said.

The "red-shirts" have demanded Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to " immediately" dissolve the lower House of parliament and hold a new general election.

The "red-shirts" have still viewed that, apart from the House dissolution, there is no other solution to the country's ongoing political conflict.

The Rathchaprasong Intersection is one main business area in Bangkok since a lot of shopping malls are located on this area.
