Pattaya —

The Thai Election Commission announced the re-election of Pattaya’s mayor at two problematic polling stations on June 12th.

In regard to an incident of the two missing ballots in the second polling station of the first district and in the twentieth polling station of the fourth district on May 22nd, the Election Commission has concluded today, May 31st, that there will be a re-election at these two troublesome stations.  

According to the Election Commission’s document, the commission has revoked the votes of the second polling station of the first district and the twentieth polling station of the fourth district. As a result, the commission will arrange a re-election on Sunday, June 12th, as authorized by Wichchuda Mekanuwong, director of the Chonburi Provincial Election. 

Voters at these two polling stations are required to notify the election authority seven days in advance if they cannot come to vote due to personal difficulties.

TPN notes it is unclear if this means an alcohol sales ban would be required for Pattaya as is normally the case for elections.
