Speaking on a local radio station based in Udon Thani, Mr Khwanchai said the forums were in opposition to the efforts of Suthep Thaugsuban, secretary general of People’s Democratic Reform Committee, to derail the scheduled general election for the House of Representatives.
His club would hold a forum in Udon Thani and encourage people to cast their votes on Feb 2.
Similar forums would also be organised in eight other provinces, Mr Kwanchai said - Maha Sarakham, Sakon Nakhon, Yasothon, Surin, Loei, Mukdahan, Roi Et and Nong Bua Lamphu. Red-shirt supporters from Nong Khai and Bung Kan will join the forum in Udon Thani.
He said participants need not wear red because the forums are aimed at educating the public on legal issues related to the election, to counter information being distributed by the PDRC.
Mr Khwanchai also said he plans to gather a large crowd of red-shirt supporters to welcome caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra when she visits the province on Friday and Saturday.
Mr Khwanchai is a strong supporter of the red-shirt movement under the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD).
