CMPO To 'Reclaim' Chaeng Wattana Road

(27 January) Governmental officials have announced that they will persuade anti-government protesters to leave their rally site on Chaeng Wattana Road.


Supporters of People′s Committee for Absolute Democracy With the King As Head of State (PCAD) have been camping around the Government Complex since evening of 12 January as part of their "Bangkok Shutdown" campaign.
Their numbers have been visibly dwindling in recent days.
Officials said the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) will spearhead a negotiation with the protesters in order to "reclaim" the area, and re-open state agencies in Government Complex currently shut down by the protesters.
Those closed down agencies include the Ministry of Justice, the Division of Special Investigation (DSI), the Department of Consular Affairs, and a number of state telecommunication offices.
It is unclear whether PCAD core leaders will agree to engage in the negotiation.
