Thailand to go to the polls on Feb. 24: Election Commission Thai politicians are charged with corruptions.Any fairer politicians at sight or propup by any other organisations so same old monks.
Thailand delayed general election on Feb 24, pending the lifting of a ban on political activity by the junta in Bangkok by January, the Election Commission said on Tuesday.
The junta imposed a strict ban on political activity after it took power in 2014, citing the need to impose order after months of street protests against the democratically elected government of former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
“The Election Commission has set Feb 24, 2019, as election day,” Deputy Election Commision Secretary-General Nat Laosisawakul told reporters. “On the lifting of the political ban, this will depend on the government,” Nat said.
The election, which many hope will restore democracy in Southeast Asia’s second-biggest economy, will likely pit the populist political movement backed by former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra and supported by many in rural areas against the military and royalist establishment.
