As such, the 32 people who registered may not become the specific representatives for Phuket in the Senate that is to be formed ahead of the national elections to be held in February. They may become “general” Senators not specifically responsible for any designated geographical area in the country.

Phuket Governor Phakaphong Tavipatana and Phuket Provincial Office Chief Administrative Officer (Palad) Anupong Wawongmoon witnessed the registrations, which opened at 8am at Phuket Rajabhat University.

The window for registering as a candidates was open from Nov 26-30. However, as a requirement of the registration process, candidates had just one hour, from 8am to 9am on Saturday, to present themselves in person.

Initially, there were 38 candidates from all three districts (in Phuket) who registered during the November window, explained Natthawan Wongisarapab, Director of the Phuket office Election Commission of Thailand (PEC).

However, two candidates failed to present themselves on Saturday, while two withdrew their registrations as the parties or organisations they were representing had already exceeded the limit of only four applications per party/organisation, Mr Nantahwan noted.

Another two withdrew their applications without any reason given.

Of the 32 candidates who did complete their registration on Saturday, 28 were independents, not representing any organisation, Mr Nanthawan noted.
