 Thailand promulgates a royal decree: the general election will be held in 2019


BEIJING, Jan. 23, according to foreign media reports, Thailand promulgated a royal decree on the general election in a communique on the 23rd, confirming that the general election will be held in 2019.

It is reported that once the Royal Decree is promulgated, the Electoral Commission of Thailand must announce the exact date of the general election.

In 2014, after the Thai military launched a coup to overthrow the Thai Party government with Yingluck as its prime minister, the National Peacekeeping Order Commission was established. Former Army Commander Bayu has served as Chairman of the Commission and Prime Minister of Thailand to date. Bayu had previously promised to hold general elections, but the date was repeatedly postponed.

Thai authorities had planned to hold general elections on February 24 this year. However, Thailands Vice Prime Minister, Vice Premier Veshanu, said earlier this month that the government suggested that the Electoral Commission reconsider the time for voting in general elections in order to avoid conflicts between post-election political activities and the crowning ceremony of the King of Thailand in early May.
