2019 Elections will test Prayuths political strategy[1]

[Posted on : 2019-01-30 by Thaksin] The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) continues to extend its term as Thailand’s longest coup regime since the 1960s. Whether junta leader General Prayuth Chan-ocha will succeed in perpetuating his power will be determined through elections expected in March 2019. Accordingly, Prayuth has sought a balance between power and popular support. The General spent much of 2018 campaigning for the promised election, even as political parties faced a ban on political activities.
Early in the year, Prayuth found himself facing a series of protests. Protestors defied the ban on political activities to protest both specific policies, such as a coal-fired power plant in Songkhla and a housing scheme in Chiang Mai, and to demand elections be held in November as previously promised. The protests proved problematic for Prayuth. Suppression would damage his popularity while concessions would simply encourage more protests.

2019 Thai general election[2]

[Posted on : 2019-01-20 by Sunan] General elections are scheduled to be held in Thailand on 24 March 2019. The date was set by the Election Commission on Wednesday 23 January 2019, only hours after a royal decree was issued authorising the poll. Voting will take place under a military-backed charter, ending one of the longest periods of rule by a military junta in Thailand’s modern history.

Earlier, the Bangkok Post had predicted that the likelihood of elections being held in November 2018, the date previously promised, was "increasingly remote". Civil rights, including the right to vote, were suspended indefinitely following the military coup in May 2014.

House of Representatives[3]

[Posted on : 2019-01-08 by Sunan] The House of Representatives has 500 members, all of which are democratically elected: 375 members were directly elected through single constituency elections, while the other 125 are elected through party-list proportional representation. The roles and powers of the House of Representatives were enshrined in the Constitution of 2017.

New rules for the House of Representatives[4]

[Posted on : 2019-01-07 by Sunan] It could hold the key to the balance of power in Thailand: the new constitution has changed the way members of the House of Representatives are elected. What exactly are those changes, and how might they affect the kingdoms immediate future?

The Thai parliament has two chambers – the House of Representatives, and the Senate. In this explainer, we’ll explore the newly-redesigned House.
The House of Representatives has 500 members. Under the new 2017 constitution, the number of constituency MPs elected under a first-past-the-post system has decreased from 375 to 350, while the number of party list MPs chosen according to proportional representation has risen from 125 to 150.
The type of proportional representation has also changed. In the 2011 election, each voter cast two ballots – one for a candidate from their constituency, and the other for one of the parties.

In the next election, to be held under a system called mixed-member proportional representation, voters will cast only one ballot. The vote will count twice – once for the candidate, and once for the candidate’s party.
