No free “elections”

14 11 2017

According to the Democrat Party, local leaders have been ordered to answer The Dictator’s question/s. As this happens, it becomes crystal clear that no “election” that the military dictatorship decides to arrange can ever be free and fair.

Deputy Dictator General Prawit Wongsuwan “warned candidates who intend to run in local elections to avoid campaigns that ‘attack’ the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO)”, Thailand’s military junta.

The point is that if there is some local polling, which we seriously doubt and consider yet another delaying ploy, the junta is not going to allow anyone to campaign freely or fairly.

If and when there is something the junta will call a local election, it seems the military thugs will choose where these will be held and will seek to prevent political parties being (openly) involved. It may also seek to have the Ministry of Interior oversea local elections.
