After a break on Wednesday to celebrate His Majesty the King's 86th birthday, anti-government demonstrators on Friday resumed their protests against the Yingluck Shinawatra government. It is difficult to predict how and when the protests will end, and the conflict settled. 

This is because it is still unclear how the demands of protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban can be met.

Legal experts widely view the plan as unconstitutional.

While political uncertainty prevails, the ongoing crisis has dealt a serious blow to the economy.
