Metropolitan Police Bureau chief Pol Lt-General Pakkapong Pongpetra accepted a letter from representatives of the Ratsadon protester group at 9.25pm on Wednesday that urged Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to resign.

The protesters gathered yesterday at Chamai Maruchet Bridge on Phitsanulok Road in front of Government House in Dusit district.

An excerpt from the letter read: “We have marched to Government House today to give the government an ultimatum. General Prayut must resign while the legal prosecution against arrested protest leaders must be stopped. We will give the government three days to comply or we will come back and increase the level of protest.”

The demonstrators had also prepared a resignation letter for the prime minister to sign, and handed it to Prateep Keeratirekha, the deputy secretary to the prime minister for political affairs.

After submitting the letter, the protesters dispersed peacefully at 9.30pm.
