Thai gov't, polling agency to discuss re-election in constituencies without candidate

English.news.cn   2014-02-09 21:58:28

BANGKOK, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- Thai polling agency on Sunday said it is going to invite caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to meet and discuss solution to the situation in the 28 constituencies where there were no registered candidates.

Thai Election Commission (EC) will send a letter to the caretaker premier before Tuesday to propose her government issue a royal decree for a new voting date, Puchong Nutrawong, EC's secretary-general, was quoted by the Bangkok Post as saying.

Meanwhile, the Democrat Party urged the EC to seek a ruling from the Constitutional Court in case the government rejects the proposal.

The EC also said Sunday that the follow-up vote for MPs will not be held next month to avoid confusion that might appears as an election for senators is already scheduled for March 30.

The National Security Council expected rally activities, which were led by the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), will not last until the Songkran Festival in April as vowed by the PDRC, because the sources of financial support for protesters are being blocked by the authorities.
