ELECTION RESULTS
38 one-horse candidates fail

The Election Commission announced Monday that up to 38 Thai Rak Thai Party one-horse candidates failed in the Sunday election because they did not receive enough votes.

Ekkachai Warunprapha, secretary-general of the EC Office, said the Thai Rak Thai candidates did not earn up to 20 per cent of votes from eligible voters in their constituency as required by the laws.

The MPs and Senators Election Act require a candidate who has no competitors to receive up to 20 per cent of votes from voters in the constituency to win the election.

The EC will have to hold a new round of elections for them but no new candidates could apply for the sub-sequent elections.

Ekkachai said the 38 candidates came from 15 provinces as following:

Krabi - Constituency 1, 2, and 3

Chumhon - Constituency 1 and 3

Trang - Constituency 1, 2, and 4

Nakhon Si Thammarat - Constituency 1, 2, 3, 6, and 8

Narathiwat - Constituency 1, 2, and 4

Prachuap Khiri Khan - Constituency 3

Pattani - Constituency 1 and 2

Phang Nga - Constituency 1

Phatthalung - Constituency 2 and 3

Phuket - Constituency 1 and 2

Yala - Constituency 1 and 3

Songkhla - Constituency 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8

Satun - Constituency 1

Surat Thani - Constituency 3, 4, and 6

Phetchaburi - Constituency 1
