    General Songsai Oversees By-elections in Isaan

    NAKHON RATCHASIMA, January 12, 2008 (TNA)

    About 70 per cent of eligible voters are expected to vote in the by-election to be held in Constituency 3 of this northeastern province Sunday, slightly lower than the percentage achieved in the December 23 general election, according to Gen. Viravudh Songsai, chief of the Election Commission (EC) office in Nakhon Ratchasima. Speaking to journalists while inspecting preparations of ballot boxes and election cards, Gen. Viravudh said he was confident that the by-election here in Nakhon Ratchasima, also known as Korat, would encounter no problem. So far there were no reports of electoral fraud in the area as competition is less fierce than the general election, he said. Some 70 per cent of eligible voters are expected to cast their votes in the by-election compared to 72 per cent in the general election. Unofficial results of tomorrow's by-election are expected to be known at about 8.30 pm, Gen. Viravudh added.
    The by-election was scheduled after the EC handed yellow cards to three People Power Party winners in the general election after they were charged of paying people to attend a political rally in a district of Nakhon Ratchasima during the run-up to the general election. TNA

    Re: General Songsai Oversees By-elections in Isaan

    My post was an update on by-elections in Isaan. There has been a lot of finger pointing after the General Election on Dec 23; a vast majority of the fingers have been pointed towards PPP candidates. It will be interesting to see how these elections change things.

    The General overseeing these by-elections replaced the previous EC official after the General Elections to make sure the elections were carried out honestly and without bias.

    Just because it was Army Generals that led the Coup to overthrow a government with wide support in Isaan could be considered by some as questionable: don't you think?
