More than one million anti-government protesters massed ahead of a major rally aimed at toppling the Prime Minister, paralysing parts of central Bangkok. The Election Commission (EC) has expressed concern over the mass anti-government rallies beginning today, fearing they could prevent the first day of election candidate registration on Monday. The Democrat Party said it would boycott February's general election, deepening a political crisis as protesters called for another major rally to step up efforts to oust the government and force political reforms.
