From ASTV Manager Weekly, December 21, 2013
Cover reads: Gotcha!
[The article is about how the Democrat Party is in an awkward position. The on-going protest is led mainly by Suthep Thuagsuban, former MP of the party. If the party resolves to run in the upcoming elections, it conflicts with the rally goals of removing the Shinawatra family from politics as the government would use the election as a referendum on its rewrite of the constitution and amnesty for Thaksin. On the other hand, if the Democrat Party decides to boycott the election, it will be accused of opposing democracy.]
