Election Commission ready


The Thai Election Commission (EC) says that it is ready for a general election whenever the Prime Minister wishes to dissolve the house of representatives.

The electoral commission were charged with the task of drafting ‘organic’ law on the election of MPs within recent charter amendments along with the reorganisation of constituencies.

The EC says that the regulations are now ready and that 53 provinces with single MP constituencies will work to the 2005 boundaries whilst the other 23 provinces which have seen significant increases or decreases in populations can be amended in time for an election.

This means that the only obstacle standing in the way of an election being called is the outstanding no confidence motion being brought by the Puea Thai Party
