A Bangkok governor candidate has filed a complaint with the Bangkok Election Commission (EC) asking it to investigate the lottery draw on Saturday and whether the winning two-digit number was fixed for political purposes. 

The complaint targets the drawing of the two-digit winning number  “09”, which is the candidacy number of Pheu Thai Party candidate Pol Cap Pongsapat Pongcharoen.

Krit Suriyaphol, the No 20 candidate, said Deputy Commerce Minister Nattawut Saikuar said on a stage at the National Housing Estate in Bang Kapi that Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra gave him only one lucky lottery number, the number “9”.
