Thaliand's Election Commission said on Tuesday it would try to hold elections on April 27 in constituencies where voting this month was disrupted by anti-government protesters. Election Commissioner Somchai Srisutthiyakorn told reporters, "Voting for constituencies where elections could not take place on February 2 will take place on April 27,". Protesters seeking to overthrow the government of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra tried to disrupt a general election that she looked set to win. Somchai had earlier said it might prove impossible to complete the election and that the whole vote might need to be held again.
