The anti-government "red-shirts" over the next 1-2 days will not hold a mass rally in capital Bangkok, "red-shirt" core leader Natthawut Saikua said Thursday, the Thai PBS Television reported.

However, a small group of the "red-shirts" will go to observe the situation at the 11th Infantry Regiment, the "red-shirt" core leader said.

The government's Center for the Resolution of Emergency Situation (CRES), or also known as the Emergency Operations Command, is located inside the 11th Infantry Regiment in Bangkok's Bangkhen district.

Natthawut was speaking at the rally site Rathchaprasong Intersection, which is the main business area in capital Bangkok.

From Thursday, the "red-shirt" main rally site will be only at the Rathchaprasong Intersection after Wednesday they abandoned another main rally site at the Phan Fah Bridge in Bangkok.

They 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.
