Quote of the day...

The New York Times
Election Commission member Somchai Srisutthiyakorn has repeatedly called for the election to be delayed. In an interview with The New York Times, he made the oxymoronic and scaremongering claim that an election would lead to another coup.

Somchai's public statements have added to the perception that the EC is a partisan group intent on obstructing the election.
