The anti-government protesters will Thursday rally at the home of caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and the Thailand-Japan sports complex at Din Daeng, venue for the drawing of ballots for party positions on the voting papers, core protest leader Sathit Wongnongtoey said on Wednesday. 

The People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) demonstrators will march to Ms Yingluck’s residence in Soi Yothin Pattana 3 in Bangkok to pressure her to resign from her role as caretaker prime minister, Mr Sathit said. The demonstrators will meet at the Ratchadamnoen rally site but the time for the group to start marching to the premier’s home has not been fixed, he added. 

Another group of protesters from the Network of Students and People for the Reform of Thailand (NSPRT) will gather at Government House at 6am tomorrow. They will later move to rally at the Thailand-Japan sports complex, where the Election Commission will carry out the draw for 34 political parties at 9am.
