EC supports UDD for wanting the referendum to be transparent

BANGKOK, 25 May 2016 (NNT) - The Election Commission of Thailand (EC) has expressed its support for the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) for wanting to set up a watchdog unit during voting in the referendum on the draft charter.


Election Commissioner Somchai Srisuthiyakorn said it was a positive move for the UDD to support a fair referendum. He added that other political groups can volunteer as referendum watchdogs, provided that they do not campaign against the draft charter.

The Election Commissioner expects more than 5% of the votes to be voided, since this referendum will have two questions instead of one. The last referendum on the draft charter took place nine years ago and had only one question.

Mr. Somchai claimed that personal feelings towards the political situation could be among the factors contributing to voided ballots.

This guy is absolute poison.

Sensible people (imho) should stay far away from him and disregard most of what he says.

What has a referendum in Thailand got to do with the EU?

The EU Commissioners are nominated by each member state and then appointed by the EU.

It seems as though don't even get elected.

Transparent as in the ability to publicallly discuss/debate this charter, to publically state what is wrong with it and to show how it will enhance the miitary's power.

So observers may be allowed "provided that they do not campaign against the draft charter". So for the ones who campaigned for it, they may be allowed?

And what about this one: "Mr. Somchai claimed that personal feelings towards the political situation could be among the factors contributing to voided ballots." Ballots voided because of or according to political feelings? HMMMMM. ...

But not transparent as in watching how you vote so that retribution can follow on any who don't do as previously instructed.

You just make up the plot as you go along. You live in a dream world. Let's have some proven facts for a change.

"Mr. Somchai claimed that personal feelings towards the political situation could be among the factors contributing to voided ballots."

In other words a NO vote will void your ballot?

I am not defending the junta as you think.

I cannot understand why the EU seems to think it is any of their business.

It would be just the same if the junta were to try to affect what happens in the EU. That is none of Thailand's business either.

Imagine if Thailand were to support the Brexit against the Remainders. What would the UK and the EU have to say about that.

Already the EU, USA, Japan etc are trying to affect the outcome of the referendum in the UK.

Here we have the EU wanting to know what is happening with Thailand's referendum.

Gentlemen, please take the pills the doctor ordered.

This is the EC of Thailand, The Election Commission in charge of the election in Thailand, the man in charge is actually a publicity seeking wannabee but that's another issue.

it has nothing to do with the EU of Europe.

Well, it's part of the official EU policy since a while:
