EC’s role should be respected

EC's role should be respected - translated and summarized from Thai Rath, January 3, 2007
Regarding the claims of the People Power Party (PPP) that the Electoral Commission (EC) has been attempting to prevent its rise to governmental power through the use of ‘red’ and ‘yellow’ electoral penalty cards. The PPP has announced its plan to form a coalition government with 3 minor political parties, and has also said it will abolish the EC once it is in power. I would like to pinpoint the fact that there were many allegations of vote-buying and other breaches of electoral law both before and during the General Election on December 23. The EC’s roles should be respected, as its mission is to put a stop to political sleaze and to support the nation’s democratic system.
