A Cabinet meeting on Tuesday approved the organisation of elections for members of Subdistrict Administrative Organisations (SAO) nationwide within this year, said Prime Minister’s Office spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana.

“The elections will use the Interior Ministry’s budget for fiscal year 2022, whereas the Election Commission of Thailand [ECT] will be responsible for setting the date as well as regulations for the process to prevent Covid-19 from spreading further,” he said.

“As for governor elections in Bangkok and Pattaya, the Cabinet appointed the ECT to set appropriate dates after the SAO elections nationwide,” Thanakorn added.
