Election results: Phalang Pracharat wins popular vote, Pheu Thai wins most seats

The Election Commission, acting on increased pressure from a number of political and NGO complaints, has released the general election popular vote count, saying the pro-junta Phalang Pracharat won the most popular votes at over 8.4 million, while Pheu Thai came second with 7.9 million votes.

This afternoon’s media conference came as a surprise as the EC had been dodging a release of updated voting figures.

Future Forward came third with 6.2 million votes, beating the Democrats with just 3.9 million votes. Coming fifth was Bhumjaithai with 3.7 million votes.

For seats in the lower house, based on the 95% count of votes….
  1. Phue Thai – 137 seats
  2. Phalang Pracharat – 97 seats
  3. Phumjai Thai – 39 seats
  4. Democrat – 33 seats
  5. Future Forward – 30 seats
  6. Chartthai Pattana – 6 seats
  7. Pracha Chart – 6 seats
  8. Ruam Palang Prachachart Thai – 1 seat
  9. Chart Pattana – 1 seat

There is another 150 seats to be announced.

The final announcement of the winners of all constituency seats in the lower house won’t be, according to their recent announcements, until May 9.

The EC reports that the turnout rate was 74.7%. Of more than 51 million registered voters, 38.2 million took part in the election.

Over 2.1 million ballots or 5.5 per cent were deemed invalid, according to the EC.
