Chuwit challenges poll voiding bids

Rak Thailand Party leader Chuwit Kamolvisit has petitioned the Constitution Court, seeking an injunction against attempts to nullify the Feb 2 election.

He also asked the court to order new elections in constituencies where protesters prevented elections from taking place, within 180 days.

The Democrat Party and the People's Democratic Reform Committee are claiming the election breached the constitution, and should be rendered null and void.

Nullifying the polls would be tantamount to violating the rights of voters and candidates who have abided by law, Mr Chuwit said. 

Nationwide voter turnout for the Feb 2 election was 46.79%, excluding the nine southern provinces where voting was cancelled, according to the latest summary by the Election Commission.

The nine provinces where voting was cancelled are Krabi, Chumphon, Trang, Phangnga, Phatthalung, Phuket, Ranong, Songkhla and Surat Thani.

This loudmouth opportunist, converted former lowlife goon, expects to have made a monster score in this phoney 'once in a lifetime opportunity' Feb.2 election, so he will fight for his juicy bone as a soy dog. No further comment, they could be considered derogatory...
