Future Forward Party representatives went to he Election Commission Office on Tuesday and demanded it disclose all constituency-based data, to prevent poll fraud.
FFP registrar Klaikong Waithayakan said his party exercised the people's right under the Official Information Act to seek constituency-based data on eligible voters, voters, ballots, invalid ballots and votes for individual candidates.
"I do not think this will create too much of a burden on the EC because in this election the EC has gathered the figures by electronic means through its app," he said.
Mr Klaikong said FFP received nationwide complaints about attempts to significantly reduce the number of votes cast for the party, and the attempts shared a similar pattern throughout the country,
"The disclosure of data about the voters at each polling unit for public examination is a way to help reduce electoral fraud," he said.
