BANGKOK -- Leaders of Thailand's pro-democracy movement on Wednesday dismissed Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha's proposal to set up an inclusive committee to find ways to break the current political impasse.

"We will not take part in any committee set up by the government," Jatupat Boonpattararaksa, or 'Pai Dao Din,' told reporters on Wednesday evening at Sanam Luang, a large open area in front of the Grand Palace. "We insist that the problems our nation faces cannot be solved if Prayuth remains in power."
