Pro-election group razes PDRC stage

A group of pro-election supporters destroyed an anti-government stage in front of the Din Daeng District Office on Sunday after being prevented from casting their votes in the election, reports said.

The stage was set up by protesters led by the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) in an attempt to block people from entering a polling station in the district office.

The reports said more than 1,000 people living in Din Daeng had filed complaints with police, accusing the Election Commission (EC) of neglecting its duties.

The pro-election group said they will hold a rally against Issaramet Kachanukul, chief of the Din Daeng District Office, on Monday because he failed to protect polling units in their area.

Din Daeng district has 175 polling stations and 25,949 eligible voters.

The stage is definitely not part of anyone's right to free speech as it blocks a public thoroughfare and prevented people from voting
