The country is now moving forward well and nothing should derail it, said ACM Sukumpol.

Asked about the government’s decision to invoke the Internal Security Act (ISA) in the three districts of Bangkok, the minister said it is to prevent any unrest from occurring.

If the anti-government protest is peaceful, the special law would be then revoked, he added.

The cabinet on Thursday decided to invoke the provisions of the ISA in Phra Nakhon, Pomprap Sattruphai and Dusit districts of Bangkok, effective from Thursday until Nov 30.

ACM Sukumpol refused to make any comments on reports of a possible military coup, saying the issue should not be talked about anymore because there will be no more coups.

He insisted that soldiers would not take part in the anti-government rally tomorrow.
