Abhisit declares election boycott

Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva Saturday declared that he will not go to his polling station to vote on Sunday.

"Tomorrow, I won't go to exercise my voting right because this election is unconstitutional and it will not achieve a goal of an election under the democratic system," Abhisit posted on his Facebook wall.

He said he would not inform the Election Commission of his reason why he would not vote because his reason did not fit into reasons announced by the EC that voters can cite for skipping an election.
