- +

The Election Commission is unlikely to be able to endorse the victory of the Democrat Party's Tankhun Jitt-issara within the normal seven days because it has received three complaints contesting the Don Muang by-election result, EC member Sodsri Sattayatham said on Tuesday. 

Mr Tankhun  beat Yuranunt Pamornmontri of the ruling Pheu Thai Party by about 2,000 votes in the June 16 by-election in Bangkok's Constituency 12.

The EC would have endorsed Mr Tankhun's win in seven days, or by June 23, if no complaints had been made.
