A total of 496 MPs of the 500 in the House of Representatives have now been cleared. Three more seats will be decided on Sunday, two in re-elections and a third following a recount of the ballot papers.
The final seat is that of Red Shirt leader Jatuporn Prompan who the Election Commission is refusing to endorse.
