EC will defer lot drawing for parties' candidacy numbers

Election Commission secretary-general Puchong Nutrawong said the EC will not draw lots to distribute party-list candidacy numbers after protesters besieged the Thai-Japanese Stadium, which is the candidacy registration site.

Protesters blocked six gates of the stadium.

Puchong said seven or eight parties' representatives could not enter the compound to submit the party-list applications.

He said some parties entered the compound since 4 am.

He urged parties that cannot enter the stadium to file a complaint with police.
