CityNews – The Office of Chiang Mai Election Commission (CMEC) accepted applications for Chiang Mai Senate from March 4-8th.

Ten candidates with their supporters and entourages arrived early at the office, where candidates’ poll numbers were randomly selected by Dr. Suchat Chaipakdee, director of Chiang Mai Election Commission.

Dr. Suchat told reporters that CMEC was ready for the upcoming senate election. He believed it would be smooth campaigning and a non-violent election because the senates are not members of any political party. The CMEC projects that there will be at least 20 more candidates, and 75% of voters will show up at the polls.

The official senate election will be on March 30th. The pre-election will be on March 23rd at the Chiang Mai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
