And after this, waiting for a legal inquiry. At this stage, there are no temporary protection measures. But according to the law, the courts will proceed and complete their hearings before the election. therefore had to wait for the court to summon him to investigate which is now fully prepared And it is for the Election Commission to answer why the 33 constituencies in Bangkok are not divided into main districts. And this zoning is not like the old electoral district, only 4 constituencies are the same as the old electoral district.
“Simply said, the intention is not to be the same as the old districts, so the Election Commission has to answer questions. because it has never happened before in history before that Zoning without a district Because the law clearly stated in Section 27 of the Organic Act on the Election of MPs that the districts were to be included as constituencies. Which currently does not include the district as a constituency, ”said Mr. Attawit.

In this regard, I would like to understand that this election is not under the Announcement of the Council for Peace and Order like last time. And the main law is the organic law on the election of MPs, which are different. Therefore, the Election Commission should exercise caution in proceeding.
