BANGKOK — Political campaigning may or may not be allowed in December, a deputy prime minister said Friday.
Wissanu Krea-ngam said the longstanding ban on political activity will also apply to social media platforms such as Line and Facebook. It will be in effect until restrictions are relaxed, a long-promised development he said would likely happen in December.
Wissanu said campaigning online or offline remains forbidden in the meantime and parties may only contact their members.
The deputy premier added that the junta and Election Commission are keeping close tabs on the matter, including attempts to perform stealth campaigning via social media.
