- +

The Election Commission will not decide this week whether to endorse the election of MR Sukhumbhand Paribatra as Bangkok governor, commissioner Prapan Naigowit said on Monday. 

Mr Prapan, the commissioner in charge of election administration, said the EC had to put on hold the endorsement of MR Sukhumbhand, who won the March 3 gubernatorial election, to allow investigators to consider petitions against the election result.

The EC expected to get the investigation result for consideration next week.
