Thailand will hold a much-delayed general election on Feb. 24, pending the lifting of a ban on political activity by the junta in Bangkok by January, the Election Commission said on Tuesday.
Axar.az reports citing Reuters.
The junta imposed a strict ban on political activity after it took power in 2014, citing the need to impose order after months of street protests against the democratically elected government of former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
“The Election Commission has set February 24, 2019, as election day,” Deputy Election Commission Secretary-General Nat Laosisawakul told reporters. “On the lifting of the political ban, this will depend on the government,” Nat said.
