Thai-ASEAN News Network Democrat Leader Faces Another Verbal Attack in Silom
UPDATE : 10 June 2011 The Democrat leader, along with the party's key members, visit the Silom area but face another verbal attack from a man from Chiang Rai Province.
Interim Prime Minsiter and Democrat leader Abhisit Vejjajiva, along with the party's key members Apirak Kosayodhin, Chawanon Intarakomalyasut and Piraphan Saleeratwipak visited Sun Tower in Bangkok's Silom area to help constituency 4 MP candidate Attawit Suwanpakdee gather votes.
The Democrats were warmly welcomed by office workers, vendors and members of the public in the business district.
Some asked for their autographs, handshakes, and pictures with Abhisit and his team.
Abhisit expressed his gratitude for everyone who turned up to show their support for the Democrat Party during his campaign speech.
The Democrat leader said he personally believed that most office workers want to see peace and order in the country and want to see the country move forward.
He also thanked Thais for helping the country overcome all crises and asked everyone to vote for the Demcocrats in both the party-list and constituency ballots.
During Abhisit's campaign in Silom, a man from Chiang Rai Province held up a piece of paper with the words “all talk” on it, while verbally attacking the Democrat Party.
A confrontation ensued as Democrat supporters countered by attacking the Pheu Thai Party.
The war of words almost turned into a physical fight but security guards were able to escort the man out of the area without any problem.
