Thai Elections politic campaign 2019

First free elections in Thailand after the Coup d’État in 2014. 

General elections are scheduled in Thailand on Sunday, 24 March 2019. 

The military government in 2014 promised to hold elections in 2015 but later postponed them. Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha told the United Nation's General Assembly in September 2016 that elections would be held by late 2017. Then, during a 2017 visit to the White House, Prayut promised elections in 2018. In October 2017, he promised elections for November 2018. However, in January 2018, the enforcement of a bill governing the election of MPs was postponed by the National Legislative Assembly for 90 days, which delays elections until February–March 2019. The bill is one of four needed to hold a general election. The constitution mandates that elections be held within 150 days after all necessary electoral laws take effect. Delayed enforcement of any of the laws pushes back the election.

Principal Candidates:

  • Prayut Chan-o-cha. Party: Palang Pracharat. New Party. Actual PM.
  • Abhisit Vejjajiva. Party: Democrat.
  • Sudarat Keyuraphan. Party: Pheu Thai.
