BANGKOK---Anti-government protesters in Thai-
land cut off electricity to the prime minister s
office compound yesterday while their leaders
of the prime
met with businesspeople to explain why they
want to oust the caretaker government before
The government and military both announced
they will hold public meetings this weekend in
attempts to find an end to the political crisis. But
the protesters insisted they would stick with their
The military Supreme Command said it would
host a meeting tomorrow at which the protest
group would explain its goals and be questioned
by invited guests from various walks of life.
Protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban cast the meet-
ing as a talk with top brass from the army, air
force, navy and police.
However, the official announcement did not
make clear if they would attend.
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra earlier
announced in a televised address that the govern-
ment would hold its own forum on Sunday with
representatives of all sectors of society to try to
formulate proposals for reforming Thailand after
the February 2 polls are held.
Yingluck made the announcement from an
undisclosed location. She was not at her office,
where protesters outside the gates cut off water
and electricity and demanded that police leave the
The protesters have previously occupied and cut
off electricity to official buildings to pressure the
Thailand has been wracked by sometimes violent
political conflict since Yingluck s billionaire brother,
former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, was
toppled by a 2006 military coup after being accused
of corruption and abuse of power.
The protesters say Thai politics are hopelessly
corrupt under Thaksin s continuing influence, and
that he buys his electoral support from the country s
urban and rural poor.
They say Yingluck is Thaksin s puppet and want
a non-elected government to be appointed to insti-
tute reforms and establish a less democratic system
that would abolish the concept of one person, one
They believe the poor are not educated enough
to choose responsible leaders.
Thaksin s supporters say he is disliked by
Bangkok s elite because he has shifted power away
from the traditional ruling class.
Thaksin and his allies have easily won every
national election since 2001.
Yingluck dissolved the lower house of Parliament
on Monday and called the early polls in an attempt
to end the crisis, but the protesters insist that she
make way for another prime minister immediate-
ly.Earlier yesterday, former Prime Minister Abhisit
Vejjajiva was charged in court with murder in con-
nection with the deaths of two protesters during
a 2010 crackdown by his Democrat Party-led gov-
ernment on pro-Thaksin demonstrators.
About 90 people died in the violence.
Abhisit denied all the accusations in the brief
hearing and was released on bail. His trial was set
for March 24.
The opposition Democrat Party, which has allied
itself with the protests, has not decided whether
it will contest the polls.
It has not won a national election since 1992.
