Election commissioners made “legal” I

17 08 2018

The Nation reports that five men in yellow ties have been appointed as Election Commissioners by the king.

Their official appointment was thus completed on 15 August when reported in the Royal Gazette. The report confirms this, stating: “With the royal endorsement, the five newly appointed commissioners can now start performing their duty officially.”

The problem is that they already began work by meeting and selecting Ittiporn Boonprakong as new EC president.

But as everyone knows, law doesn’t bother the great and good in Thailand. Or the military junta.
