BANGKOK, 22 April 2019 (NNT) - The Election Commission (EC) proceeded with re-elections at six polling units in five provinces today, as the deadline for the announcement of official election results approaches.

 

The six units are: 

- Unit 32 of Constituency 13, Bangkok 

- Unit 12 of Constituency 1, Petchabun 

- Unit 6 of Constituency 2, Pitsanulok 

- Unit 6 of Constituency 2, Yasothon

 

And two units in Lampang: 

- Unit 3 of Constituency 4, and

- Unit 6 of Constituency 4

 

The Election Commission ordered the rerun at the six polling stations where it was found that the number of voters who turned up did not match the number of marked ballot papers received for counting. 

 

Meanwhile, a recount of votes was ordered at more than 200 polling units around the country where there was supporting evidence that the results of the vote count on March 24 were inaccurate.

 

The Election Commission is scheduled to announce the official results of Thailand’s general election 2019 on May 9. Its heavy workload is being expedited to meet the deadline while more than two hundred election-related cases are waiting to be resolved.

That's what democracy (Thai style) is all about: multiple choice from selected parties and repeated voting until the result fits the desire.

Of course you could just cancel the party that stuffed the ballot boxes in the first place and declare a winner from the rest. Pretty sure identifying which military backed party was responsible would be fairly simple.

I wonder if anyone will file suit that the March 2019 is unconstitutional?

In March 2014 the Constitutional Court nullified the February 2014 election.

The ruling PTP was expected to win, but the opposition led by former Democrat Deputy PM Suthep and former Democrat PM Abhisit boycotted it and protesters disrupted voting that kept some voters from voting at their polling station, meaning the election has not been completed.

The vote was unconstitutional because it did not take place on the same day across the country.

Following the court's previous decision, seems to me that the ENTIRE election must be redone - all on the same day. In fact the PTP and EC had planned to redo the entire election in May 2014 in compliance with the court's decision - but almost immediately following the announcement for a new election, there was a military coup.

But I guess this time the junta has the authority to allow a limited election redo irrespective of the Constitutional Court's ruling.

Sorry  forgot this is Thailand, different rules apply dependent on who is applying the rules.!
