Pro-election activists warned to follow the law

Pro-election activists were reminded to keep their planned political activities peaceful and within the limits of the law and to refrain from mocking junta leaders in an improper manner.

Maj-Gen Piyapong Klinphan, a spokesperson of the National Council for Peace and Order, said Thursday (March 1) that the junta would not employ any special measure to deal with the public gatherings of the pro-election activists, but would make sure that the gatherings were peaceful and orderly even though some politicians might join their activities.

He reiterated Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha’s promise to hold the election within February next year and the NCPO’s wish to restore peace and order in the country and to prevent ill-intent elements from stirring up chaos.

Pro-election activists planned to stage a major rally on March 10 besides its weekly gathering to press for an early election this year.
