The government may extend the Internal Security Act (ISA) for another month depending on how many people continue to attend ongoing anti-government protests, National Security Council chief Paradorn Pattanatabut said on Friday.
Lt Gen Paradorn said the decision whether or not to maintain heightened security measures would be based on turnout to anti-government protests planned for Sunday, Nov 24.
If the number of demonstrators at Democracy Monument grows and the rally looks set to be prolonged further, the ISA might be extended for another month from Nov 30, he said.
The ISA has been imposed in three Bangkok districts - Phra Nakhon, Dusit and Pomprap Sattruphai - since Oct 18.
