The Armed Forces and Royal Thai Police are discussing security measures in the event of mass protests against the election of a new Prime Minister.

The security forces are concerned that supporters of the “Move Forward” and “Pheu Thai” parties may organize violent unrest if the coalition of 313 deputies fails to secure the support of 63 senators or deputies from other parties to elect the “Move Forward” party leader, Pita Limjaroenrat, as the new Prime Minister of Thailand.

All foreign trips by the heads of the armed forces and police have been canceled ahead of the voting, which, according to preliminary information, may take place on July 13.

According to a recent survey, the majority of Thais do not plan to support anti-government protests as they have a negative impact on the country’s economy.
