The leader of the Thai protest movement that has been battling to oust Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said he would not end his demonstrations despite her dissolving of parliament.
"Today we will continue our march to Government House. We have not yet reached our goal. The dissolving of parliament is not our aim," Suthep Thaugsuban told Reuters.
He has repeatedly said he did not want a new election but wanted a vaguely defined, unelected "people's council" to run the country.
