- +

The Election Commission explained on Sunday that former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra was eligible to vote for a new Bangkok governor. 

The name of the self-exiled prime minister appeared on the list at the polling station at Pimolwit School in Bang Phlat district in addition to his children, Panthongtae, Pinthongta and Paethongtarn. Their home is in the district.

Commissioner Praphan Naigowit said Thaksin could exercise his vote this time after ending a five-year political ban for general election fraud in May last year that was imposed on him as leader of the defunct Thai Rak Thai Party.
