The National Security Council (NSC) believes that there is no need to impose any security restrictions in light of the anti-government campaign against the House deliberation of an amnesty bill since. The agency has projected that less than 5,000 people would join the rally from the different anti-government movements.

Recent internal conflicts between protesters of the different anti-government groups had weakened the movement and therefore did not believe the rally, likely to take place later this week, would have much impact. The NSC also said that no businesses or political groups were reported to be financially backing the anti-government protesters. Paradorn also ruled out the chances of a military coup as a result of the rally. Meanwhile, Democrat Party list MP Ongard Klampaiboon downplayed Democrat Surat Thani MP Suthep Thaugsuban's attempts to incite the public to join the anti-government rally against the bill.

Before leaving for her official visit to Mozambique, Tanzania and Uganda, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra expressed confidence that anti-government protesters would not resort to violence, adding that she had instructed National Police chief Pol General Adul Saengsingkaew to ensure public safety. Yingluck declined to comment about a YouTube clip featuring a death threat made against the former prime minister and her brother Thaksin. Pheu Thai MP Korkaew Pikulthong, who is also a red-shirt leader, explained the bill proposed by Worachai was aimed at helping red shirts that faced legal action, not Thaksin.
