The decree, countersigned by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and published in the Royal Gazette today, requires that the chairman of the Election Commission implement it.

The EC is authorised by law to set the polling date and required to set the date within five days of the royal decree being published in the Royal Gazette.

Recently, Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam said March 24 would be a suitable date, as it would give enough time for election campaigning.
