PHUKET:-- The Phuket office of the Election Commission of Thailand (PEC) has been told to prepare to hold local municipal elections, which have been tentatively set for Mar 21.


The local municipal elections will be the first held on the island, and throughout the country, since the National Council for Peace Order (NCPO), headed by Army General Prayut Chan-o-cha, took control of the country in May 2014.


The news follows the Cabinet yesterday (Jan 12) passing a resolution allowing municipal elections to be held at all levels nationwide following a proposal by the Election Commission of Thailand (ECT), with polling tentatively scheduled for March 21.
