He and his supporters had rallied on the Pathumwan skywalk on December 14 after the Election Commission asked the Constitutional Court to dissolve the party.
Thanathorn is accused of loaning the party Bt191 million in alleged violation of electoral law.
Pathumwan police summonsed Thanathorn on December 27, saying his rally had violated the 2015 Public Assembly Act.
On Friday he sought to test his limitations again.
Posting on @Thanathorn_FWP, he invited supporters to gather at the police station at 3pm.
“They tried to scare us, put us in despair,” he tweeted. “But we are not afraid, we will not surrender. No one can take away our dream. Please join me to demonstrate our power from 3pm onward at Pathumwan Police Station.”
