With the Bangkok governor election drawing near, bikers and pedestrians must be curious about the candidates' policies to make their daily adventure on the streets better.
To help make it easier for them to make a decision before going to the polls next month, Thammasat University is staging a forum entitled "Vote Bike 2013: Less Car, More Space" this Sunday. Four selected candidates for the gubernatorial election are invited to express their visions about sustainable transportation in the city.
They are Pongsapat Pongcharoen from Pheu Thai Party, former Bangkok governor MR Sukhumbhand Paribatra from the Democrat Party and independent candidates Suharit Siamwalla and Pol Gen Sereepisuth Temeeyaves. They will also be exchanging ideas and opinions with representatives from four agencies. Issues expected to be raised include the use of bicycles, public buses and walkways in Bangkok, as well as the results of a survey of bikers.
The four agencies are the Thai Cycling for Health Association, the Thai Society of Environmental Journalists, the Green World Foundation and TU Cycling Club.
The forum will take place at Sri Burapha Hall of Thammasat University, Tha Phrachan campus, on Sunday from 9am to 11am.
