March 2 election rerun 'impossible'

- +

The Election Commission (EC) is unable to hold poll reruns on March 2 to complete the Feb 2 general election, EC chairman Supachai Somcharoen said yesterday. 

Mr Supachai said the commission will meet Wednesday to consider suggestions and measures proposed at a meeting hosted by the EC on Monday.

The proposals were made by representatives of the caretaker government and pro-election academics who wanted the poll agency to complete the election process within 30 days of the Feb 2 poll, date or by March 4. They wanted the poll rerun on March 2 to keep within the deadline and sidestep any potential legal problems.
