 Thai Election Day: Patience


Overseas Network, Jan. 22 - Thailands election day has been delayed. Thai Prime Minister Bayu Zhanou spoke less than 21 local time, saying that the Royal Decree will soon be published in the Royal Gazette of Thailand.

According to the Bangkok Post, the Royal Decree was supposed to be published on January 2 this year, and the most likely date for Thailands general election is February 24. However, according to reliable information within the Electoral Commission of Thailand, the Electoral Commission is facing tremendous pressure on when the election day is set. For now, it is likely that the polling day will be March 10 or 24.

In this regard, Bayu 21 said, Royal Decree will soon come, he appealed to the public please be patient. It is understood that without the promulgation of the Royal Decree, the Electoral Commission could not finalize the specific date of the election.

In Thailand, the postponement of election day has caused a lot of unrest. On the 19th, a group of protestors gathered in front of the National Legislative and Political University of Thailand. Another group calling itself pre-election solidarity demonstrated near the Democratic Monument on the same day, urging pro-election groups to stop their activities and saying that the country had suffered enough political disputes. In addition, protest warnings followed. People Who Want Elections, a pro-election group, said they would take to the streets on the 26th if the royal decree against the election was not promulgated on Thursday (24). Sirihian Ngatton, deputy spokesman for the National Peace and Order Commission (NCPO), said that all political activities would be closely monitored to prevent violence.
