BANGKOK — The Election Commission’s secretary general said Thursday that political parties would have to receive permission from the junta to accept public donations.

 

Police Col. Jarungvith Pumma said letters would be sent to all political parties on Friday to clarify the matter and reminded parties not to break the law. Junta order No. 57/2014, bans political activities, and its recent relaxation does not include the acceptance of public donations.
