Quote of the day

“I am afraid that if the election goes ahead, there will be violence and it may lead to a coup.”
— Somchai Srisutthiyakorn

Election Commission member Somchai Srisutthiyakorn has repeatedly called for the election to be delayed. In an interview with The New York Times two days ago, 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.
