The government has asked its legal arm, the Council of State, whether it can issue a new royal decree to organise polls in the 28 constituencies where there was no registered candidate to vote for during the Feb 2 election. 

Pongthep Thepkanchana, caretaker deputy prime minister, said yesterday the Election Commission (EC) proposed that the government should issue another royal decree for polling in the 28 constituencies in the South.
