EC defers decisions on polling problems

- +

The Election Commission was not able to make any decisions on various problems concerning the Feb 2 election at its meeting Thursday, but expects to get the answers needed on Friday, commissioner Somchai Srisuthiyakorn said. 

Mr Somchai, who is in charge of electoral management, said the only resolution made at Thursday's meeting was for the EC to act on behalf of some 10 million people who were not able to vote on Jan 26 and Feb 2 due to many problems including the blocking of polling units. They would be able to keep their right to vote intact by notifying the Local Administration Department's director-general, in his capacity as director of the Central Registration Office.

By doing this, the 10 million people would not have to lodge a complaint by themselves, he said.
