The National Election
Committee announced Saturday that foreigners will not be allowed to
participate in campaigns for district, municipal and provincial council
elections scheduled for May 17. "The regulation of the election
campaign is not different from the previous election campaigns, but
there is a new point that prohibits foreigners from participating," NEC
member Klok Buddhi said in a press release. The release states that the
campaign period will last from May 1 to May 15.
