'Don't blame city staff': Bangkok Governor

The government's peacekeeping centre should not pass the blame for the failure to hold the snap poll in some polling stations on city officials who resigned as election staff.

Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra was responding to reports that the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) will investigate the city officials' resignations.

"Any investigation, if it were to take place, would be the duty of the Election Commission (EC), not the CMPO," he said.
