Mae Rim Mayor Elections
CityNews –The Mae Rim Municipality has opened registration for the mayor elections. However it might be that not many people are interested in the position; only three people showed up to register and draw their election numbers.
Candidate number one in the election is Manas Kamchan, former vice chairman of the council for the Mae Rim District. Number 2 is Pirapan Sangruang, former mayor of the Mae Rim District, and Number 3 is a new face: Ampaipan Tabthong, owner of Maetaman Elephant Camp.
The election starts in 60 days. Registration runs from the 30th of April to the 4th of May. The actual election will be held on the 3rd of June, 2012.
Moo 1 Baan Muen Toy Nam Ngaam, Moo 2 Bann Kon Taan, Moo 4 Baan Ton Kaew, Moo 5 Baan Ta Wang, Moo 6 Baan Huai Jo, Moo 7 Baan Tung Hua Chang, Moo 8 Baan Sai Moon, and Mae Sa District, Moo 1 Baan Sribunruang, and Moo 2 Baan Ta Rai have all been set as electoral areas.
In 2010 Pirapan Sangruang was arrested for allegedly commissioning the murder of the President of Mae Rim Municipality Council, 56 year old Somporn Churakham. Churakham died of gun shot wounds after he was ambushed in a drive-by style execution.
Sangruang became mayor in 2011. He stood down on April 7th, 2012, and is now in the race for the mayor-ship again. The term for mayor lasts 4 years, and a mayor can only last for 2 terms. Although, if a mayor should resign, this does not count as a term.
