People's Democratic Reform Committee secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban will not be successful in his bid to hunt down acting caretaker Prime Minister Niwattumrong Boongsongpaisan and other ministers to force them resign, Pheu Thai spokesman Prompong Nopparit said Sunday.
Mr Prompong said Pheu Thai's legal team viewed Mr Suthep's announcement to hound Mr Niwattumrong as unlawful since forcing the acting premier and his caretaker ministers to resign was a criminal act. The Department of Special Investigation was following up this issue, he added.
"I believe Mr Suthep, in doing so, will not be successful. On his announcement to surrender to police on May 27 if his plan to bring down the government fails, I don't believe he will do so," he said.
