Thailand Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha lifted the State of Severe Emergency Situation in Bangkok on October 22 as protests continued.The Prime Minister officially stated that he lifted the declaration of emergency made on October 15 and 16, as the violence was over. Towards the pro-democracy protests, he said the only sure way to achieve a sustainable, enduring resolution to the problems was to speak to each other, respect the due process of law, and then let the will of the people be resolved in the parliament.

He also said that the protestors had made their voices and views heard and that it was time for them to let their views be reconciled with the views of other segments of Thai society through their representatives in the parliament.
