Cover reads: The endorser?
[Reference is to follow-up of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee’s first meeting on April 5. Suthep Thuagsuban, PDRC’s secretary-general, told his supporters at Lumpini Park after the meeting that once the National Anti-corruption Commission rules out its verdicts on the government’s cases, the PDRC shall announce a state of sovereignty. He then will propose names of new premier and cabinet members to HM the King. And he’ll therefore perform as the endorser of the royal command.]

Cover reads: Stunned…
In quotation: People Like Gen. Prayuth [the Army’s commander in chief] and armed forces’ commanders, most of them stand by this land, by the people’s side. If I’m wrong, I’ll be responsible for it.
[Reference is to Suthep Thuahsuban’s announcement to seize sovereign control after the court rules on the prime minister. Reaction from Gen. Prayuth, on whom Suthep told his supporters that they can rely, stunned the anti-government’s supporters. Gen. Prayuth replied to questions from reporters and implied that he did not agree with Suthep. The Manager Group, being both a fierce foe of Thaksin as well as the Democrat Party, ridicules Suthep for his overconfidence.]
