Privy Council president Prem Tinsulanonda will be among some 900,000 early voters in Bangkok to cast their general election ballots tomorrow. About two million people registered as early voters nation-wide.

 

The first public appearance of the ageing statesman, after several months of hospital visits, will dispel speculation that he was seriously ill.  He will cast this ballot at a polling booth inside Sukhothai School tomorrow morning at about 9 am.

 

Meanwhile, a large number of troops, including conscripts, will be trucked to polling stations to vote tomorrow in Bangkok, Lop Buri, Prachin Buri and Sa Kaeo provinces.  Election officials have made preparations to avoid chaos or public confusion that may arise from such mass movement of military personnel.Army Commander-in-Chief General Apirat Kongsompong will vote on March 24th.

He has an army officer by his side to help him hold the pencil and make sure he ticks the right box.

As far as I know everyone could have applied for today's early vote.

No justification needed.

It has been made clear that those who applied for early voting and miss it will not be allowed next Sunday.

Guess for the honorable Privy Councilor Prem no application needed and every exception possible :whistling:

Only when he is being cremated. And at this rate it will be in another hundred years.

And adding conscripts in the statement itself is a thumbs back at whomever thinks that their indoctrination by force into the military will ever stop.

Just to note the anomalous decision by a previous Constitutional Court regarding the February 2014 election.

The Constitutional Court judges ruled in a 6 to 3 vote on Friday that the election was unconstitutional because voting failed to take place on the same day around the country.

As a result the Court annulled the election (Yingluck predicted to win).
