Balloons released to support election

Around 300 people gathered on and around a skywalk near the BTS National Stadium station near the Bangkok Arts and Culture Centre to support the Feb 2 election.

The rally organised by a group called ANTs’ POWER got together at around 2pm Sunday. Most of the participants wore white tops and released white balloons while shouting “we want the election” several times. They dispersed after 30 minutes.

In a statement, the group said they would hold more such gatherings of pro-election people to express their collective wish for effective scrutinisation and examination of politicians. 

Though they believe that the election could not be the only answer for democracy, they said they certainly believed that the Feb 2 poll was the answer and the solution to reducing current political conflicts.
