BANGKOK: Thai protesters who have massed on Bangkok's streets for six months said Thursday they will appoint a new government, following the removal of Premier Yingluck Shinawatra by a court.

"Tomorrow (Friday) we will take steps towards appointing a new government," protest spokesman Akanat Promphan told AFP, adding the ruling party's new prime minister has no "legitimacy."
