Since polling places for the Thai national election opened at 8 a.m. today, the town of Pattaya has been bustling. Long lines of passionate voters ready to cast their ballots for their chosen candidates have made the polling places in Pattaya lively.
Pattaya Mayor Poramese Ngampiches was one famous voter spotted in the line. The Mayor reminded eligible voters that polling places would be open until 5 p.m. today, urging people to cast ballots and have their voices heard. Ngampiches commended democracy and emphasized the significance of voting in maintaining a healthy democracy.Additionally, a restriction on the sale of alcohol has been put into effect, which affects everyone, even non-voting tourists. The prohibition will be in effect until 6 p.m. today, when voting ends.
The Thai Election Commission will need to review the election results before they can be made public on a national level. An atmosphere of expectation permeates Pattaya and the entire nation as citizens exercise their democratic rights and cast their ballots.According to a report from yesterday, Thailand’s Election Commission (EC) expects an overall voter turnout of 85%. Despite a few difficulties encountered during the advance voting last week, the EC reportedly still has faith in its capacity to organize the elections effectively.
