Anyway, the results are as follows.
- For the chairman election, the voter turnout was 53.57%, or 355,017 of 662,728 who did cast their vote. The winning candidate is Thani Thueaksuban (นายธานี เทือกสุบรรณ), who was candidate number 2 and the one endorsed by the Democratic Party. He got 194,543 votes or 59.3% of the valid votes. The candidate of list 1 made it second with 111,138 votes, and number 3 got 22,437 votes.
- For the PAO council, 30 members were elected in the 30 constituencies. Out of these, 17 were won by the candidate from list 2, probably also the ones from the Democratic Party. So it seems the council will have a majority of Democratic Party members - though I cannot be sure, as at least in one of the Mueang constituencies the Democratic Party candidate had the number 4 instead of the 2. Anyway, a Democratic Party dominance in the south of Thailand is nothing surprising.
The candidate on the poster above, Chathurong Sukmueang (นายจัตุรงค สุขเมือง), was the least successful of constituency 5 of Mueang district, receiving 1,576 of 8,744 votes.
