The Election Commission (EC) has prepared a contingency plan for a possible ruling that may declare four articles in the senate election law unconstitutional, according to election commissioner Thitichet Nuchanatta. Though he confirmed that senatorial selections at the provincial level will continue as scheduled this Sunday, he did not disclose what the backup plan involves. He added that the EC will await Tuesday's verdict and stated that any assumption that the senatorial election could be nullified due to the court's decision is purely speculative.

 

EC Secretary General Sawaeng Boonmee indicated today that local election chiefs are well-prepared for Tuesday's voting. He stressed that their focus is on assuring a peaceful, orderly, and fair selection process. Acknowledging that several issues arose during last Sunday's initial round of selection, such as a non-audio CCTV system at polling booths and unqualified entrants in the polling area, Boonmee confirmed that these problems are being addressed.

 

Moreover, as several candidates received no votes in the district elections, which might suggest they were stand-ins, Boonmee stated that an investigation into the matter is in progress by local election officials.

Golly, if they're not careful the EC itself could be banned for 10 years!

Before the results we have a plan B. We know who need to win and if not we make them. Thai democratic and honest elections

I do think if plan B fails they have a back-up plan C...as long as they win/grab power back, the plan name it's not important 555

My Plan B would be 100% public voting by provence in what would be called an election, not a selection

This would be an extension of the 2007 Constitution that provided for 50% election.
