Democrats seek to nullify polls

- +

The Democrat Party will file a petition with the Office of the Ombudsman, asking it to seek a ruling from the Constitution Court on whether the Feb 2 election is invalid, deputy party leader Ong-art Klampaiboon said on Sunday after the end of voting. 

He said the Democrat Party believed the election contravened the Electoral Act and the Constitution. The party will gather evidence of wrongdoing and submit a request with the Office of the Ombudsman, asking it to approach the Constitution Court.

The request would be separate from the one submitted earlier by Wirat Kallayasiri, chief of the party's legal office.
