PAD proposes "People Revolution Government"
The People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) has come up with a new proposal to establish an interim government in what it calls;People Revolution Government; that is totally clean, accountable, and removable besides allowing greatest public participation.
Maj General Chamlong Srimuang and Somsak Kosaisuk, the two leaders of the PAD announced in a press conference on Monday about its latest statement after it rejected to end political impasse through the establishment of a national government formed by all political parties.
It has also rejected a government led by the People Power Party which it accuses of being a nominee of former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra. It also disapproves of a coup and a nomination of a prime minister who has ever publicly lied.
Chamlong said the PAD has not yet set the detail on how the People Revolution Government or "Prachapiwat Government" could be formed but he said the PAD was ready to forgo its "new politics theory" of having appointed MPs 70 per cent and elected MPs 30 per cent.
"It does not need to be 70/30. We just cite it as an example because we do not want 100 elected MPs and Senators because that would open a way out for them to take over Parliament,'' he said.
Chamlong said new politics theory is possible if the People Power Party stops its monopolizing and dictatorial behaviour. "Politicians should be selected from people across the sectors and professions,'' he said.
He said the PAD would continue its sit-in protest to oust the nominee government of Thaksin. "We ousted Thaksin and we got Samak Sundaravej and then we had Chalerm Yoobamrugn and Pol General Kowit Wattana. These people rotate to power. We have to oust them till they fully out of the circle and the country has the People Revolution Government,'' he said.
Asked why the PAD did not give caretaker Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat a chance to run the country, Chamong said the PAD did not accept Somchai because he was more obviously a nominee of Thaksin than Samak. "He has the image of being a crook. His record showed his intention to side with evil. Why does the PPP propose him as PM,'' he said.
Meanwhile 100 members of Dharma Army removed smelly and dirty mud and soil in front of Thai Khu Fah Building as the pollution there is taking its toll on the protesters who has camped out for several weeks there.
They are bitten by mosquitoes. Mud and dead grass was removed and calcium hydroxide was pour over the area to kill germs and prevent mosquitoes from laying eggs around the camp. Then they dump sand before putting wooden sheets for protesters to sit for the rally.
