1st round of District council elections in Bangkok

Districts having elections in 1st round
As the term of the district councils of 14 districts of Bangkok ended today, within 60 days the new elections must be held. Just few days ago the timeline for this first round was announced.
  • April 29: End of term
  • May 3-7: Application of candidates
  • June 6: Election day, voting between 8 am and 3 pm
The 14 districts which will vote then are: Bang Kapi, Lat Phrao, Bueng Khum, Wang Thong Lang, Saphan Sung, Kan Na Yao, Bang Khen, Chatuchak, Lak Si, Don Mueang, Sai Mai, Min Buri, Khlong Sam Wa and Lat Krabang, as one can see in the map all in the northeast of Bangkok.

The other 36 district councils will end their term on July 22, the timeline for these elections apparently isn't set yet. But estimating from this first round an election date end of August or beginning of September is to be expected.
