Not biased??

14 03 2014

The Bangkok Post has conjured a remarkable editorial. It takes a huge leap by declaring the Election Commission’s (EC) “unbiased” following its “belated decision by 3:2 votes to yellow-card Bangkok Governor MR Sukhumbhand Paribatra more than one year after the governor election…”.

Even Sukhumbhand can’t believe the EC’s verdict took so long.

That the EC dawdled on this case is, in fact, more evidence of its bias. One decision that slaps Sukhumbhand and the Democrat Party on their collective wrist does not change that history of bias and the EC’s remakable partisanship on the current and ongoing election. It has been hopeless.

And, the EC’s decision can still be tossed out. But the Post, grasping straws says “the EC’s action in this case should send a message to the Pheu Thai Party and the other parties that the EC is not politically biased against them.” Nonsense.
