Leaders of six parties hoping to form an anti-junta coalition government will seek clarification from the Election Commission regarding Sunday’s polling results.

They said they would pressure the commission to speedily disclose the final tally and announce the winners.

Sudarat Keyuraphan, a Pheu Thai Party nominee to serve as prime minister, said after the parties’ joint announcement of plans for coalition on Wednesday that they would meet commissioners later the same day.

Pheu Thai leads the bloc of seven parties, which has a combined 255 MP seats in hand. One of the parties, New Economics, was not represented at the press conference.
