A group of voters from the southernmost provinces of Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat on Friday gathered to demand anti-government protesters hand over general election ballot boxes and papers currently being held at a local post office, reports said.
They assembled in front of the Otop centre on the Hat Yai-Pattani Highway in Pattani’s Nong Chik district calling on People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) protesters to vacate the Regional 9 post office and allow authorities to deliver ballot boxes and voting papers to polling stations in the far South.
Anti-government protesters have been surrounding the post office in a bid to prevent the planned Feb 2 election from taking place.
