Election postponement possible if parties agree: EC

Member of Election Commission Somchai Srisuthiyakorn said on Tuesday the EC is ready to postpone the election from February 2 if political parties reach an agreement to delay it and if it is permitted by the laws.

Somchai was responding to representatives of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), who met the EC to submit the call for a postponement of the election.

But if the election date cannot be postponed, the PDRC should help campaign for a fair election and no vote buying, Somchai said.
