The Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES) has submitted its report recommending for the additional lift emergency rule in six provinces, Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban said on Thursday.

At present, the state of emergency was twice scaled down from 24 to 16 provinces, including Thailand's capital Bangkok.

If endorsed by Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, the emergency rule will remain in 10 provinces. The central province of Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, and Ayutthaya are the core areas of the emergency rule.

The enforcement of the state of emergency has remained in capital Bangkok and 15 other provinces, or totaling 16 provinces to ensure public security though the over-two-month long rally by the "red-shirts" ended on May 19.

The death toll from a series of violent clashes between the " red-shirt" protesters and troops during March 12 to May 19 in central Bangkok stood at 88 and 1,885 others were wounded.
