Election Commission chief Supachai Somcharoen today announced that they would not proceed with the royally-endorsed election of February 2, 2013.
Supachai said he was concerned for the safety and security of his commission officials.
But the question is whether he has the authority to neglect his duties and deviate from an election which has the support of the highest institution of the Kingdom. The EC wants all the political parties and mob to come to an agreement for peace before the proceed with the election.
The Democrat Party and Suthep’s mob do not intend to take the path of peace. They want to overthrow a democratically elected Government and derail the election so they can install their politicians in a dictatorship.
