Luang Pu Buddha Issara said the blockade is a call for the director of Laksi district, who is also chairman of the election committee in Bangkok's constituency 11, to refrain from delivering the ballot boxes and ballot papers to polling stations in Laksi area.

He said the ballot boxes and voting papers are equivalent to poisonous fruits and if they are sent out it would have negative consequences. He believed a large number of people would lose their lives if the Feb 2 election goes ahead.

Soi Chaeng Wattana 10 was closed to traffic by the blockade.
