The Election Commission said Tuesday, fresh elections in Thailand will be held in July or latest by September. The caretaker government under the leadership of acting premier Yingluck Shinawatra will consult with the Election Commission about the fresh elections for which a royal decree is yet to be issued. Election Commission Secretary General Puchong Nutravong said that the polling agency has offered three tentative choices for election dates to the political parties. A total of 53 political parties, including the ruling Pheu Thai Party, attended a meeting Tuesday with the Election Commission but failed to reach consensus on the election date.
