BANGKOK, Thailand – Thailand will hold a new general election July 20th, Election Commission (EC) secretary general Puchong Nutrawong said Wednesday (April 30th), according to AFP.
Puchong told reporters the date was decided during talks with Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
It was not immediately clear if the main opposition Democrat Party would take part in the new vote.
The kingdom has been without a fully functioning government or parliament since December. A general election in February was voided after opposition demonstrators disrupted voting.
