Thai PM in live broadcast refuses to resign position
Thailand's embattled Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej has vowed in a live radio broadcast that he will not resign. Samak said Thursday he will not bow to the demands of anti-government protesters and will stay in office to "protect democracy." "I am not resigning," Samak said in a radio broadcast, which had fueled speculation that he was about to step down. Samak imposed a state of emergency in Bangkok on Tuesday after bloody rioting between his supporters and opponents left one person dead. The violence heightened a national crisis that started August 26 when thousands of opponents of Samak occupied the grounds of his office and refused to move until he resigned.
