Only a day after Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai declared that Thailand didn’t need foreign  observers for the upcoming general election, the Election Commission yesterday revealed that the European Union has proposed to send an army of observers to monitor the polling expected in February next year.

 

In a meeting with members of the political affairs and two other subcommittees of the National Legislative Assembly on Wednesday, representatives of the Election Commission said the EU wants to send as many as 200-400 observers to monitor the election nation-wide.

 

An informed source in the Election Commission said the huge number of poll observers proposed by EU is unprecedented and the EC has yet to formally consider the request.
