Will the Thai Prime Minister step down? | Inside Story

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Will the Thai Prime Minister step down? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

Thailand has seen political instability since its army chief took power in a coup eight years ago.

He eventually became Prime Minister–but has faced resistence from many Thais who’ve been demanding change.

Protesters are now calling on Prayut Chan-ocha, to resign.

Students at a university in northern Bangkok held protests on Wednesday.

So, will the Prime Minister step down? And if he refuses, could that lead to further unrest?

Presenter: Mohammed Jamjoom

Guests:

Jade Donavanik – President of the Law Faculty at the College of Asian Scholars.

Thitinan Pongsudhirak – Professor and Director of the Institute of Security and International Studies at Chulalongkorn University.

Sunai Phasuk – Senior Researcher in the Asia Division at Human Rights Watch.
