Local polls key for changeAfter a long delay, Thailand is to hold local elections across the country on Dec 20. According to the Election Commission (EC), 8,521 candidates registered for the Dec 20 elections in 76 provinces. Initially, there was an expectation that vote turnout for the local elections would be exceptionally high given the absence of polls for so long. It's believed that voter turnout for Dec 20 could reach 90%, higher than the normal rate of 70-80%. However, all voters must be aware that the PAO elections are important for local development in every aspect, including education.
