Court protest fizzles amidst calls to cancel

- +

The red-shirt protest against the Constitution Court appeared to be faltering Tuesday after the ruling Pheu Thai Party and other red-shirt groups distanced themselves from the rally. 

A Pheu Thai Party source said the protest, led by the Radio Broadcasters for Democracy movement, lacked cooperation from major figures in the party who have a key role in mobilising supporters in the provinces.

The protest is expected to end shortly since it is estimated the turnout will fall short of the 100,000 that the movement wanted, the source said.
