Clashes Reported At Din Daeng District Office

(2 February) Clashes between anti-election protesters and frustrated voters reportedly broke out at Din Daeng district office.

Supporters of the People′s Committee for Absolute Democracy With the King As Head of State (PCAD) have besieged the district office to prevent distribution of ballot equipment stored in the building. 
Their effort was rewarded with the announcement by the district authority and the Election Commission (EC) that voting at all polling station in Din Daeng has been cancelled. 
However, upon hearing the news, crowds of frustrated voters gathered near the district office and shouted their demand for the election to go ahead as previously planned. 
The crowd later marched to the district office, where they stormed into the building and demanded that the district director order the voting to resume.
Sporadic fistfights and wars of words between the disappointed voters and PCAD protesters were also reported, but many PCAD supporters had already left the area shortly before the clashes took place.
