Pattaya mayoral re-election is set to take place this upcoming weekend in two districts, jury still out on possible alcohol sales ban

Pattaya —

The Pattaya mayoral re-election is set to take place this June 12th in two districts. No alcohol ban has been reported so far but is subject to change.

Update: We have been told by City Hall tonight no alcohol ban for this re election this weekend. Of course, things can always change last minute but it looks like for now the weekend is safe.

The Pattaya News wants to remind some of our readers who might have missed out on the re-election of the Pattaya mayor this Sunday, June 12th. The re-election will take place in two polling stations including:

  1. The second polling station in the first district (Mueang Pattaya School 2, Naklua sub-district, Bang Lamung, Chonburi)
  2. The twentieth polling station in the fourth district (Mueang Pattaya School 7, Nong Prue sub-district, Bang Lamung, Chonburi)

The current unofficial mayor-elect Poramase “Beer” Ngampiches is reportedly unconcerned about the result since he holds quite a lot more votes than the other three candidates. You can learn more about the previous unofficial election results here.
So far, there have been no reports about an alcohol ban in the two mentioned districts nor a citywide ban like in the first election on May 22nd. We urge though that you stay put for a possible update in the next two days. If there was a sales ban, it would take place from the evening before, the 11th, around 6:00 P.M. until around 6:00 P.M. on the 12th. TPN media has reached out to City Hall officials several times over the past week about the possibility of an alcohol sales ban and have had mixed answers, with no clear yes or no as of press time.
