Bangkok's new governor has designated seven zones across the capital for the holding of protests, a measure that comes as large anti-government rallies have taken place since 2020.

Car parks, parks and sports venues, away from the historical and financial centers of Bangkok, are some of the authorized spaces where the political protests can now be held, as long as authorities are informed in advance and do not break the law, according to the document made public on Friday.

Chadchart Sittipunt, a progressive politician popular among the youth protest movement and who swept the local elections held at the end of May, had announced during his campaign his intention to zone areas of Bangkok for demonstrations.
