Election Commission secretary-general Jarungwit Phumma, left, along with his deputy Nath Laosisawakul, announces the unofficial results of Sunday’s general election yesterday at the Government Complex in Bangkok’s Chaeng Wattana Road.

 

Jarungvith blames ‘human error’ as social media erupts with ridicule.
 

THE INTEGRITY of the Election Commission (EC) has come into question with people asking if the vote tally has been free and fair.

It is also being roasted for confusing and contradictory results released through its Rapid Report system on Sunday night.
