UDD urges heavy voter turnout

- +

Red-shirt supporters and all others who love democracy should turn out en masse to vote on Sunday, says Tida Tawornseth, chairwoman of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD). 

She issued the call as anti-government protest leader Suthep Thuagsuban threatened to completely shut down Bangkok to prevent voting from taking place.

Mr Suthep had earlier pledged that his People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) would not actively impede people from voting. But that pledge was broken in many places last weekend and a lot of polling places are expected to be blocked on Sunday.
