THE ELECTION COMMISSION was today (Jan.5) advised to see whether Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha may practically break the law with the evident use of government property and personnel whilst “paying popularity-wooing” visits to the provinces during a current run-up to the next general election.


Prayut who has earlier confirmed to contest the general election for prime minister under the Ruam Thai Sang Chart banners is scheduled for tomorrow to visit Singburi where he will preside over a demonstrative rice planting activity in style of the government-promoted Bio-Circular-Green Economy in which some government property such as a helicopter and sedans will be used and provincial as well as local government officials will be evidently involved.  


Deputy Pheu Thai spokesperson Chayapa Sindhuprai called on the polling agency to see whether Prayut may violate the election law during the current 180-day period ahead of the election date by using such government property and personnel whilst tacitly wooing popularity from among farmers and other constituents in one of the country’s largest rice growing provinces.

So if he is breaking the law, ban him for 10 years as the EC did with other politicians too..But because he is the ruling party and the PM probably the laws are not for him
