PAD to evaluate situation before deciding whether to besiege Parliament

The People's Alliance for Democracy will evaluate the situation on Monday before deciding whether to besiege the Parliament on Tuesday when the two chambers are scheduled to amend the charter.

The House and Senate are scheduled to have a joint sitting Tuesday to amend the charter to pave way for an establishment of a new constitution drafting assembly.

Pipop Thongchai, a PAD leader, said the PAD would evaluate the situation on Monday.

The PAD is opposed to charter amendments.

Pipop said if the Democrat Alliance Against Dictatorship rallies in front of Parliament on Tuesda in support of the amendment, the PAD would not demonstrate there.
