The Election Commission on Tuesday made a unanimous decision to endorse the victory of Tankhun Jitt-itsara of the Democrat Party in the June 16 by-election in Bangkok's Constituency 12.
Prapan Naigowit, the EC member in charge of election investigations, said the commission made the decision after a panel investigating complaints about the election result was unable to finish its work within 30 days of the election.
The EC is required by the law to endorse the election in 30 days.
The investigation panel will continue with its investigation, which must be completed in one year.
Mr Tankhun narrowly beat Yuranunt Pamornmontri of the Pheu Thai Party in the in the Don Muang District by-election last month.
The EC could not immediately endorse his victory because complaints were filed accusing Mr Tankhun of violating election law during his campaign.
