He cited three Free Youth demands and maintained that the government has never threatened people.
“The drafting of a new charter is under a committee studying regulations and guidelines to improve the constitution,” Thanakorn pointed out.
“And as for Parliament dissolution, the Free Youth group should hear comments from people across the country over whether they agree with this demand or not,” he added.
