MEA promises uninterrupted power for upcoming Bangkok elections


The Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA) has deployed officials to check electrical systems and backup power generation in Bangkok’s 50 districts to prepare for governor and council elections this Sunday (May 22).

“MEA technicians have been checking electrical systems at all polling stations and election administration centres in 50 districts to make sure all equipment is working optimally,” MEA director of public relations Jumphot Himajaroen said on Wednesday.

“Our goal is to provide uninterrupted power on election day until the night, when the votes will be counted to ensure a transparent and trouble-free election that everyone is hoping for,” he said.

“Furthermore, on election day the MEA will have emergency teams on standby all 24 hours in case of any power outage to provide backup power,” Jumphot said.

The MEA is urging eligible Bangkokians to exercise their rights this Sunday from 8am to 7pm. If you are not sure which polling station you need to go to, visit: https://stat.bora.dopa.go.th/Election/enqelectloc/#/
