Bangkok: Thailand’s anti-government People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) leader Suthep Thaugsuban Thursday agreed to hold talks with caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, provided the negotiations are one-on-one and televised live, media reported.

Suthep made the announcement at a PDRC rally Thursday, the Bangkok Post reported.

He said he was ready to represent the great mass uprising in talks with Yingluck.

According to Suthep, the talks must also be broadcast live on television nationwide so that people throughout the country can watch the debate.

“Just tell me the date and time. But the talks must be one-on-one and broadcast live on all television channels to allow people all over the country to hear,” Suthep was quoted as saying.

Anti-government protestors are reportedly seeking to overthrow Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s administration and implement anti-corruption reforms.

The government had imposed emergency security measures last month.
