Mr Panthep said the PAD will read a statement to announce an end to its rally at 8pm on Friday.

Thailand has withdrawn from the World Heritage Convention, as it had demanded, he said.

It would take the PAD five days to remove its equipment and other items from the Chamaimaruechet bridge near Government House, where it has rallied for several months calling for the government to withdraw from the WHC and against parliamentary endorsement of the memorandum of understanding made with Cambodia in the year 2000.

Mr Panthep said the announcement to end the PAD rally would made in parallel with a major rally of the Democrat Party at the Royal Plaza and of the Pheu Thai Party at the Rajamangala Sports Stadium at Hua Mark on Friday night.
