Thailand's Election Commission on Saturday assured representatives of 11 nations and one international electoral organisation of a clean and fair election on Sunday.

 

The EC briefed representatives of election commissions from Australia, Bhutan, Cambodia, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar, Indonesia, Philippines, South Korea, East Timor, and Vietnam at the Rama Gardens Hotel at 9.45am. Representatives of the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) also attended the session.

 

EC secretary general Jarungwit Phumma told the representatives that the EC welcomed them to observe the election on Sunday.

 

Jarungwit said the EC allowed the representative to monitor the election to show that the polls would be transparent, clean and fair so that the international community would have confidence in the next government.

EC commissioner Wiroj Kowattana told the representatives that the Thai EC was an independent organisation and it was not under anyone's order to organise the polls.

 

He said the EC was a strong organisation.

Are these representatives of 11 nations going to hang around for the weeks it will take before the results are announced, to ensure no counting irregularities further down the line?

The "cleanliness" and "fairness" has already been bought and paid for in billions of baht of Thai Niyom money that was spread liberally around the country during the vote buying spree disguised as mobile cabinet meetings. 

Yes wat I can see in the morning they pay 300-500 bht !!!!!!!!!
