United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship leader Tida Tawornseth has asked Jatuporn Prompan to replace her and lead the red shirt movement, but Mr Jatuporn has refused, a Pheu Thai MP said on Monday.
Speaking at a UDD meeting on Sunday, Mrs Tida said she wanted to resign the UDD chair after two years in the position. She asked Mr Jatuporn to replace her, giving the fact that he had not been included in the last three cabinet line-ups, including the latest one on Sunday, and that he was competent and would be the right man for the job.
However, Mr Jatuporn did not accept the proposal, saying he was not ready for the top job of the red shirt movement yet because he was still busy and had something else to handle for the near future. However, he said he might be able to take the position in the future, Pheu Thai Party-list MP Korkaew Pikulthong said late Monday evening.
