The Election Commission (EC) plans to formally ask the caretaker government to issue a new royal decree to reschedule the Feb 2 elections. 

But the government reiterated it has no authority to change the poll date.

EC commissioner Somchai Srisuthiyakorn said the EC decided at a meeting yesterday that it will send a letter to ask the caretaker government to issue a new royal decree to cancel the Feb 2 election stipulated in the royal decree issued on Dec 9 last year. The decree also dissolved the House of Representatives and paved the way for the Feb 2 poll.
