The first nationwide elections of all 5,300 sub-district administrative organizations (SAO) since the 2014 military coup take place this Sunday (Nov 28).

 

This will be the first election in eight to 10 years for many SAOs, with their last vote held at least a year before the coup.

 

The post-coup junta suspended all political activity, meaning elected chief executives of local administrations remained in their posts long after their four-year terms ended.

 

Sunday will see the third nationwide election of local administrative organizations since the junta’s ban on politics was lifted.

 

The first came last December, when chief executives and members of provincial administrative organizations (PAO) were elected in all provinces, except Bangkok. Then, March saw elections of 2,472 municipal councils across the country.

I would vote for anyone who didn't have a van going around with a 120dB sound system telling me to vote for them.

Over recent years, there seems to be a gradual change in the appearance of official promotion/campaign posters.....and the widening acceptance of candidate's pics as smiling and familiar everyday folks, replacing the standard look and practiced depictions of said candidates as stern military clad mafia bosses and the like. 😉

Be assured that local and provincial elections are far more value for the communities than their equivalent at the national level.

'What’s at stake in Thailand’s nationwide local elections on Sunday?'  A bigger piece of the local pie.  Why else would thousands be expended on plastic notices obscuring Traffic junctions?  Why else would fleets of speaker vans be allowed to hold up traffic adding to the pollution?  (that NONE of the successful candidates will do anything about.)
