    Subject

    Can you please help me with these questions.

    Are these sentenses all Simple present tense?

    Are these underlines indicate "subject" correctly?
    -----


    Deputy Prime Minister for security affairs Suthep Thaugsuban said on Saturday he was not worried about the ongoing protest at Khao Soi Dao in Chanthaburi by supporters of the anti-government United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD).

    “It is not surprising as the red-shirt people group had repeatedly announced it would continue rally against the government”, Mr Suthep said.

    The red-shirts want to create negative image on the government and the Privy Council, he added.

    “But if the red-shirted demonstrators violate the law, they will face stringent legal action”, he stressed.

    Mr Suthep was confident that police are capable of maintain peace and order.

    Hi, there
    These sentences are not in the Simple Present. Most of them are in the Simple Past.
    For example the Deputy SAID (irregular Simple Past), he was not worried
    One uses the Simple Past when describing something that happened in a certain time in the Past. Key words are :yesterday, ago, last week .

    As far as your second question, the answer is yes, the underlined words are subjects.
    Hope I have been helpful
